Meeting Description:

The Workshop on Language and the Brain aims at bringing together researchers, theorists and practitioners from across a variety of disciplines comprising Cognitive Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, and Neurolinguistics, in order to explore the complexities of the human brain regarding the language capacity.

The workshop intends to cover a wide variety of themes and address a number of questions, among which are the following (this is by no means an exhaustive list):

- What makes human language(s) unique?
- How do humans/we acquire the various different linguistic components? How is language learnt?
- How are these linguistic components connected in the brain? How do humans process and produce language(s)?
- Are there any common characteristics between the structure/processing/learning of natural languages and other languages (e.g. music)?
- Is it possible to map language to its physical reality in the brain?
- Is human vocal learning special in any way?
- How does the study of language disorders contribute to a better understanding of the linguistic brain?
- How do context and frequency of use contribute to the way language is represented in the mind/brain?

Call for Papers:

For the paper sessions, we invite contributions from the fields of Cognitive Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, and Neurolinguistics, on topics that suit the interdisciplinary, exchange-oriented outline of the workshop. The research presented may, but does not have to be, interdisciplinary itself.

Each paper will be presented in 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

Abstracts of up to 300 words should be submitted to by May 12, 2019.

We will send notifications of acceptance by June 15, 2019.
