be on (1) language diversity of both spoken and signed languages; (2)
inter- and intra-linguistic variation; (3) language change. The conference

Call For Papers

Cconference Theme of AFLiCo IV

The theme of the 2011 conference is:
Cognitive Linguistics and Typology: Language diversity, variation and
change

This conference aims to bring together linguists engaged in cognitively-
oriented research with those working in a functional-typological framework
on cross-linguistic variation and on language description. The emphasis will
be on (1) language diversity of both spoken and signed languages; (2)
inter- and intra-linguistic variation; (3) language change. The conference
will bring together linguists working with various methodological approaches
and using various kinds of spontaneous and elicited data, including spoken
and written corpora, fieldwork data, and experimental data.

Proposals are invited for workshops/thematic sessions, for general session
papers, and for posters, on topics related to the theme, and on topics in
Cognitive Linguistics generally. Papers that report empirically-grounded
research on less-studied languages and on typologically, genetically and
areally diverse languages will be particularly welcome.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
-methods and data in cognitive linguistics and in language typology and
description
-convergence and divergence between cognitive linguistics and
functional-typological linguistics
-studies from a cognitive and/or typological perspective in phonetics,
phonology, morphosyntax, semantics and pragmatics
-language variation within and across languages, both spoken and signed
-language change from a cognitive and/or typological perspective
-language acquisition
-studies and advances in construction grammar
-language and gesture in cross-linguistic perspective

Languages of the Conference

The languages of the conference are French and English.

Oral Presentations and Posters

Proposals are invited for 30-minute slots (20-minute presentation plus
question time) in the general sessions and for posters (A1 size).

Each workshop proposal should contain the following information:
