Meeting Description:

The aim of FDG2022 is to further elaborate the model of Functional Discourse Grammar (FDG) as proposed by Kees Hengeveld & J. Lachlan Mackenzie. Full descriptions of FDG may be found in Hengeveld, Kees & Mackenzie, J. Lachlan. 2008. Functional Discourse Grammar: A typologically-based theory of language structure. Oxford: Oxford University Press; and in Keizer, Evelien. 2015. A Functional Discourse Grammar for English. Oxford: Oxford University Press.

To enhance the discussion between participants, all sessions at the conference will be plenary. A poster session will be part of the programme. The language of the conference will be English.

The members of the Organizing Committee are: Hongmei Fang, Kees Hengeveld (chair), and Lois Kemp, all from the University of Amsterdam.

The Programme Committee consists of the following members: Kees Hengeveld (University of Amsterdam), J. Lachlan Mackenzie (VU Amsterdam), and Hella Olbertz (Chair, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela / University of Amsterdam). The Programme Committee will evaluate anonymized abstracts and decide on their inclusion in the conference programme. Abstracts submitted by members of the Programme Committee will be evaluated by an external specialist.
