Call for Papers
The conference welcomes contributions from all fields of cognitive linguistics, as well as from related fields more broadly concerned with language and cognition. We aim to cover a wide range of research including, but not limited to, the following topics:
Functional and usage-based approaches to language
Cognitive grammar and construction grammar
Cognitive/constructionist approaches to linguistic diversity and typology
Metaphor, metonymy, blends and other forms of figurative language
Cognitive semantics and frame semantics
Prototypes and categorization
Cognitive discourse analysis
Cognitive approaches to historical linguistics
Experimental semantics and pragmatics
Sign language research
Language and space
Language and perception
Gesture and multimodality
Embodied cognition and situated cognition
Cognitive linguistics is by definition highly interdisciplinary, and so in addition to primarily linguistic research, we also invite language related submissions that are based on disciplines such as (cognitive and social) psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, anthropology, biology, artificial intelligence, and discourse and communication studies.
Talks will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion. There will also be a poster session.
The language of the conference is English.
Participants will be allowed to present at most one talk (as a single or first author) and one poster. However, there is no restriction on the number of co-authored papers. Upon submission, you will be asked to indicate if you intend the submission for a talk or a poster.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words (excluding references) should be submitted on EasyChair, using the link at the bottom of this page.
The Call for Papers will be open from September 2019 until December 30, 2019
If you require a BSL interpreter, please get in contact with the organisers.
All abstracts will be subject to double-blind peer review by an international scientific committee (and should therefore not contain author names).
