Phonology in the Cognitive Grammar Worldview

a theme session within the

Ninth International Cognitive Linguistics Conference
Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea.
17-22nd of July 2005

We are seeking abstracts for papers exploring how fundamental principles of 
Cognitive Grammar (prototype theory, experiential grounding--‘embodiment’, 
principles of categorization, including the concept of the ‘basic level,’ 
and usage-based theories) can elucidate the organization of phonology in 
Language (either spoken or signed).

We invite abstracts from researchers in all areas of cognitive linguistics 
and related frameworks who are interested in the way the purely 
form-oriented, physical aspect of language is perceived, categorized, 
organized and produced.

Abstracts should be between 300 and 500 words, and clearly display their 
relevance to the topic. Abstracts should be submitted electronically (RTF 
or PDF format) to Geoffrey Nathan (geoffnathan at  and José Antonio 
Mompeán,(mompean at, and should reach us no later than August 30. 
Authors will be notified by September 5th whether their abstracts have been 
selected for the theme session. The theme session proposal will then be 
submitted to the organizers of the ICLC-9, who will notify us of acceptance 
or rejection by January 15th.
