Final Call for Papers:

We invite the submission of abstracts (for paper or poster presentations) addressing all aspects of cognitive linguistics.

The conference aims to cover a broad range of research concerned with language and cognition. We will be especially interested in promoting strongly empirical work. To this end, we intend to organise (some of) the papers into thematic sessions, with our plenary speakers acting as discussants. The themes will be:

- Embodiment
- Gesture
- Typology and constructional analyses of the languages of the world
- Acquisition
- Corpora and statistical methods
- Metaphor and discourse

In addition to these themes, submissions on other aspects of the field are also welcome, including:

- Domains and frame semantics
- Categorisation, prototypes and polysemy
- Mental spaces and conceptual blending
- Language evolution
- Linguistic variation and language change
- Cognitive linguistic approaches to language teaching

Talks will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion. There will also be a poster session. The language of the conference is English.

Abstracts of max. 300 words (excl. references) should be submitted using EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ukclc5. Participants may submit abstracts for no more than one single-authored paper and one joint-authored paper.

Abstracts must be anonymous, and should be submitted in plain text and/or PDF format. If you need phonetic characters, please ensure that they are displayed correctly.
