5th UK Cognitive Linguistics Conference

29-31 July 2014, Lancaster University

The 5th UK Cognitive Linguistics Conference (UK-CLC5) will be hosted by Lancaster University. Confirmed plenary speakers are:

  *   Daniel Casasanto (The New School, New York)
  *   Alan Cienki (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
  *   William Croft (University of New Mexico)
  *   Adele Goldberg (Princeton University)
  *   Stefan Gries (University of California, Santa Barbara)
  *   Elena Semino (Lancaster University)
The conference aims to cover a broad range of research concerned with language and cognition. We will be especially interested in promoting strongly empirical work. To this end, we will also be looking to organise (some of) the papers into thematic sessions, with our plenary speakers acting as discussants. The themes will be:

  *   embodiment
  *   gesture
  *   typology and constructional analyses of the languages of the world
  *   acquisition
  *   corpora and statistical methods
  *   metaphor and discourse
Information about the conference can be found at http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fass/events/uk-clc5/index.htm, which will be updated as more details become available. The first call for papers will follow soon.
