Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Discourse Analysis

Meeting Description:

The 5th Conference on Language, Discourse and Cognition (CLDC 2011),
hosted by the Graduate Institute of Linguistics at National Taiwan
University, will be held April 29th to May 1st in 2011. A two-day post-
conference workshop on Chinese lexical semantics will be held following
CLDC 2011 on May 3rd and 4th. The CLDC is an annual international
conference with the aim of bringing together researchers interested in
language, discourse, and cognition to report new research findings,
exchange innovative ideas and share frameworks in these areas. Although
CLDC was launched only four years ago, the topics relevant to language,
discourse and cognition themes as well as the interdisciplinary exchange
stimulated during the last few years have given rise to a growing body of
critical findings, making CLDC an important meeting in the fields of cognitive
linguistics/functional linguistics in East Asia. We hope that the CLDC 2011
meeting will continue to attract a greater number of international
researchers to participate in the dialog. In addition to inviting highly
accomplished keynote speakers, as has been done in conferences past, we
are also inviting for the first time established scholars as invited speakers to
showcase research findings in their areas of expertise. These
arrangements will hopefully facilitate even greater exchange and interaction
between participants and stimulate new ideas and research directions in our
respective fields of study. The CLDC 2011 will focus on research associated
with cognitive linguistics/functional linguistics, and will be divided into a
general session with the theme of 'Discourse and Cognitive Linguistics' and
a special session with the theme of 'Metaphor and Cognition'. Furthermore,
the 12th Chinese Lexical Semantics Workshop (CLSW12), the theme of
which is 'Cognitive Aspects of Lexical Semantics', will be held as a post-
conference workshop.
