Meeting Description:

Submissions are invited for a theme session at the 13th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference (ICLC-13), Newcastle (UK), July 20-25, 2015. 

Theories of “embodiment” in cognitive linguistics and related disciplines have led to major advances in the understanding of linguistic meaning. A key claim is that the meanings of many linguistic units correspond, directly or through metaphorical extension, to recurring patterns of sensorimotor experience or “image schemas”, whose susceptibility of visual and kinesthetic transformations in mental space also accounts for synchronic and diachronic variation. Furthermore, units at all levels of linguistic structure – including grammatical constructions – are taken to be meaningful, insofar as these can be described in terms of symbolic pairings of schematic phonological or syntactic forms and conventionalized semantic or pragmatic meanings. However, insights of the cognitive interdiscipline have scarcely penetrated Greek and Latin linguistics.

Call for Papers:

We invite contributions aimed at bringing Latin and Greek linguistics into more thoroughgoing dialogue with cognitive linguistics, toward the development of a “cognitive classical linguistics”. In particular, we seek papers exploring the potential of cognitive theories and methods to inform our understanding of the semantic or pragmatic values of Greek and Latin constructions. Possible avenues of exploration include, but are not limited to: possessive expressions; adjective placement; word order; cases and adverbial constructions; reflexives and reciprocals; passives and impersonals; conditionals, etc. Papers highlighting ways in which the two disciplines can benefit through reciprocal exchange are especially encouraged. 

Please contact the organizers at the address provided below for more information. A 500 word abstract outlining the subject and scope of the proposed contributed are requested by September 7, 2014.
