Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science

Call Deadline: 01-Apr-2014

Meeting Description:

The conference aims to serve as a forum for discussion of any topic within the field of cognitive linguistics. In addition, in line with its title “Applied Cognitive Linguistics: New challenges”, particular attention will be paid to research into the application of the theoretical postulates of cognitive linguistics to other fields such as first (L1) and second (L2) language acquisition, translation or discourse analysis.

The conference will feature four plenary lectures, delivered by scholars of international repute:

Frank Boers (Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand)
Alejandro Castañeda (University of Granada, Spain)
Nick Ellis (University of Michigan, USA)
Jeannette Littlemore (University of Birmingham, UK)

Call for Papers:

We invite interested researchers to submit proposals for presentations on topics related to cognitive linguistics, such as the structural characteristics of categorization systems in language (prototypicality, metaphor and metonymy, image schemas, etc.), functional principles of linguistic organization, the relationship between language and thought, the conceptual interaction between syntax and semantics or the experiential basis of language in use.

We especially welcome submissions dealing with the applications of cognitive linguistics to other fields such as the teaching or acquisition of languages, lexicography, the analysis of different types of discourse (language for specific purposes, multi-modal discourse, etc.) or translation, among others.

Researchers interested in participating may send proposals for a paper (20 minutes for the oral presentation followed by 8 minutes’ discussion), thematic session (a 90-minute session consisting of between 3 and 5 papers on a specific topic, which will be proposed by the coordinator of the theme session) or poster (which will be reserved a slot in the programme to allow authors to discuss their work with other delegates). Abstracts should be submitted by 1 April 2014 using the following form:
