Meeting Description:

The 2nd Symposium on Figurative Thought and Language concentrates on the centrality of conceptual metonymy, conceptual metaphor and metaphtonymy in language and reasoning with a view to foster interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue, promote the study of figuration in different languages and cultures and foster dissemination of research results.

The Symposium will bestow the FTL Young Researcher Award (FTL-YRA) upon a deserving young researcher, who must be a doctoral candidate or a doctoral graduate within the five years prior to 30 June 2015. The paper must be an original unpublished investigation dealing with figuration. Only one work per candidate is admitted. The manuscript must be in English. The selection of the winning paper will be the responsibility of the Young Researcher Award Committee, which is appointed by the FTL2 Scientific Committee. The main selection criteria are the high scientific quality and relevance, and the level of argumentation. The award will consist of a monetary prize of 300 euros with a certificate of achievement that will be presented at the Award Ceremony.

2nd Call for Papers:

The abstract submission deadline has been extended to 25 April 2015. 

The dates of the 2nd Symposium on Figurative Thought and Language (FTL 2) have been extended: 28 October- 30 October 2015.

Furthermore, the FTL 2 Young Researcher Award (FTL-YRA) will be bestowed to THREE deserving young researchers, who must be doctoral candidates or doctoral graduates within the five years prior to 30 June 2015. The papers must be an original unpublished investigation dealing with figuration. The Young Researcher Award Committee will select three papers based on scientific quality, innovation, significance of the contribution to the field, and clarity. The best paper will receive a certificate of recognition and a monetary prize of 300 euros; the second and third finalists will receive a certificate of recognition and a book from an international publishing house.

We invite contributions from different theoretical and applied perspectives (e.g. cognitive linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience and the philosophy of the mind), and methodologies (e.g., experimental protocols, cross-linguistic comparison, synchronic and diachronic analyses, translation, corpus studies).

Suggested topics include (but are not restricted to) the impact of figuration on levels of linguistic analysis (morphology, lexis, semantics, pragmatics), on areas of grammar, on various types of discourse (e.g., the discourse of economics, law, medicine, philosophy, politics, psychology and psychotherapy), on the language of emotions.

The working language of the symposium is English. Submissions on languages other than English are encouraged.

Abstract Submission Guidelines:

Please upload your abstract as.doc file via EasyAbs (http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/FTL2015) no later than 28 March 2015. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words including figures and references. They should also list up to five keywords.

Please, specify ‘FTL Young Researcher Award (FTL-YRA)’ at the very beginning of your abstract if you are a doctoral candidate or doctoral graduate within the five years prior to 30 June 2015 and intend to run for the award.

Paper presentations will be allotted 20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion. Poster presentations will be displayed at a special poster session.

A selection of peer-reviewed paper-length versions of accepted submissions will be published with an international publisher in 2017.
