Meeting Description:

IC-FDG-2012 seeks to elaborate the model of Functional Discourse Grammar, as laid out in Hengeveld & Mackenzie (2008) and is preceded by a two-day Course on FDG.

Call for Papers:

The conference will host papers on any topic related to FDG. This includes both theoretical expositions concerning the model itself and applications of the framework to new data. However, one topic will be given special attention: Lexicon and Grammar in Functional Discourse Grammar.

The length of the papers will be 30 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. There will be no parallel sessions at the conference. Apart from the special and general sessions, there will be ample room for poster presentations.

The language of the conference will be English.


Given the role the quality of the abstract plays in the selection procedure, it should contain at least the following items: a clearly defined and well-motivated research question; the crucial examples illustrating the relevance of the research question; and the main conclusions the paper arrives at. Abstracts should have a length of approximately 1000 words, i.e. roughly 3 pages, and should not contain the name of the author. References to the literature cited should be given. Please indicate in the accompanying message whether you want to present a paper or a poster.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically as a .doc file to the International Secretary of FGF at fg-fgwuva.nl. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 December 2011.
