The linguistics community at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is planning
to hold a symposium on the topic of 'formulaic language'. The symposium, which
will be held on the campus of UWM April 18-21, 2007, will be the 25th in the
series of the once-annual UWM Linguistics Symposia.

By formulaic language we mean multi-word collocations which are stored and
retrieved holistically rather than being generated de novo with each use.
Examples of formulaic language include idioms, set expressions, rhymes, songs,
prayers, and proverbs; they may also be taken to include recurrent turns of
phrase within more ordinary sentence structures. These are notable in ordinary
speech as well as in ritualized speech events such as sports broadcasts, weather
reports, sermons, etc.

In our symposium, we are aiming to explore the issue of formulaic language from
a variety of perspectives. To this end, our keynote speakers are scholars whose
specializations range over a large spectrum of language-based study, including
specialists in corpus-based linguistics, psycholinguistics, phonology,
phonetics, typology, and related fields. Our keynote speakers are:

Joan Bybee, University of New Mexico
Osten Dahl, Stockholm University
Britt Erman, Stockholm University
Charles Fillmore, University of California, Berkeley
Lily Wong Fillmore, Univesity of California, Berkeley
Barbara Fox, University of Colorado
Adele Goldberg, Princeton University
John Haiman, Macalester College
Paul Hopper, Carnegie Mellon University
Susan Hunston, University of Birmingham
Koenraad Kuiper, University of Canterbury
Jill Morford, University of New Mexico
Andrew Pawley, Australian National University
Ann Peters, University of Hawai'i
Joanne Scheibman, Old Dominion University
Sandra Thompson, University of California, Santa Barbara
Michael Tomasello, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Rena Torres-Cacoullos, University of New Mexico
Diana van Lancker, New York University
Thomas Wasow, Stanford University
Alison Wray, Cardiff University

In addition, there will be a general session, for which potential speakers are
invited to submit a one-page abstract: due date November 1, 2006. Selected
papers from the symposium will be published as an edited set of volumes in the
Typological Studies in Language series published by John Benjamins.
Abstracts may be submitted in hardcopy or in electronic form. Hardcopy
abstracts should be sent to:

Roberta Corrigan
Dept. of Educational Psychology
University of Wisconsin
Milwaukee, WI 53201
USA

Electronic submissions should be sent to:
