Cognitive Linguistics, as a theoretically motivated approach to linguistic
and behavioural science, encompasses research on a wide variety of
linguistic and cognitive phenomena (including: syntax, semantics,
discourse, ASL/Auslan (sign language), gesture, psycholinguistic and
neurolinguistic data), and also has points of research contact with
various other linguistics sub-fields -- cf., socio- (cultural) and applied
linguistics research, as well as computation research. It is the
convenor's aim that this workshop will attract as many papers as possible
from around Australasia and beyond that investigate cognitive linguistic
processes, to illustrate the diversity of research interests encompassed
by the cognitive linguistics enterprise as well as cognitive linguistics
research in this region. 

The Institute ("ALI'98") will be held over 10 days during the first two
weeks of July 1998, with classes being held on Monday through Thursday and
workshops being held during the intervening weekend. A number of eminent
scholars have already shown their support for this workshop by agreeing to
give papers at this forum (as well as give courses during the Institute):

- Prof. Wallace Chafe (U.C. Santa Barbara) 
			- Cognitive constraints on discourse 
- Assoc. Prof. Eve Sweetser (U.C. Berkeley)
			- Gesture & Metaphor
- Assoc. Prof. Arie Verhagen (Utrecht Univ.)
			- Cognitive Grammar

This workshop will be opened with a Plenary paper by Prof. Wallace Chafe
on Thursday evening (9th July), after classes. All other papers will be
given on Friday (10th July). At this point, a max. of 14 speakers
(including the other two invited speakers) have been scheduled for that
day. Each paper will be 15 minutes + 10 minutes for questions/discussion
and change-over. 

The final selection of papers to be included in the program will be based
on the best possible mix of research efforts to reflect the diversity of
research interest within the broader area of Cognitive Linguistics.
Papers that deal with languages of the Pacific Rim are especially
