Apologies for duplicate postings.

The ninth conference on Conceptual Structure, Discourse, and Language  
will be held October 18-20, 2008, at Case Western Reserve University  
in Cleveland, Ohio. We are now accepting abstracts.

The theme of CSDL 9 is "Meaning, Form, and Body." The focus is on two  
central, related research areas in the study of language: (1) the  
integration of form and meaning, and (2) language and the human body.  
These topics intersect naturally, as in the study of grammatical  
constructions, of conceptual integration, and of gesture.
