Meeting Description:

Cognitive Processes and Social Factors in Language Variation and Change
(Bern University, September 16-17, 2011)

The aim of the workshop is to bring together two traditionally distinct lines of research related to the study of variation in language use, one being concerned with social factors and the other one dealing with individual cognitive mechanisms. In this context, theoretical approaches and empirical results on the interplay of both sets of factors are of particular interest, e.g., the social modulation of cognitive processing in linguistic interaction, or the individual mediation of societal influences on language use.

The workshop is jointly organized by linguists from the Romance, Slavic, German and General Linguistics departments. It is intended as a small-scale 2-day meeting that brings together experienced and novice colleagues from different countries.

Confirmed guest speakers:
Holly Branigan (University of Edinburgh)
Morten H. Christiansen (Cornell University)
Dirk Geeraerts (Universiteit Leuven)

We are looking forward to your paper submissions (in form of abstracts of 300-500 words), ideally by the end of July 2011. Late proposals will also be considered.

Papers which address issues of language variation and change from a sociolinguistic and/or psycholinguistic perspective are especially welcome. In case you would like to participate without contribution, we ask you to informally register by email.
