Subject: 3rd International Cognitive Linguistics Conference

 First Circular


 July 18-23, 1993 - Leuven, Belgium

The conference offers a forum for research within the perspective of
Cognitive Linguistics. This perspective subsumes a variety of concerns and
broadly compatible theoretical approaches that share a common basis: the idea
that language is an integral part of cognition which reflects the interaction
of cultural, psychological, communicative, and functional considerations.

Topics of special interest for Cognitive Linguistics include the structural
characteristics of natural language categorization (such as prototypicality,
metaphor, mental imagery, and cognitive models), the conceptual interface
between syntax and semantics, the experiential and pragmatic background of
language, and the relationship between language and thought.

The conference will include nine keynote lecture and up to ninety 40-minute
lectures in parallel sections. A workshop on psychological models of
categorization is being planned. The social programme will feature various
receptions, a farewell concert, and a guided trip to one of Flanders'
historical towns.

Authors are requested to submit four copies of a one-page abstract in
hardcopy format to the address below. Abstracts must be received before
November 1, 1992. Authors will be notified of acceptance by January 1, 1993.

If you intend to participate in the conference and wish to receive the second
circular (which will be sent out in January 1993), send your name and address
