Hello Funknet Members,

I have received several emails arguing "against' the position
supposedly taken in the call for abstracts. I think that
unfortunately the wording may have been been misleading. The purpose
of the workshop is to question the general assumptions about the
universality of image schemas in relation to the assumptions about
linguistic relativity. We want to put all the cards on the table and
figure out what's what, according to what we know would be consistent
with the rest of cognition. As such, if any Funknet members would
like to join the discussion, we will welcome your abstracts until
Sunday night at midnight at the latest.

best wishes,
