Meeting Description:

In recent decades, the belief that general cognitive and sensomotoric capabilities affect the language faculty as essential determinants has grown increasingly prevalent in linguistics. After the initial main focus on lexical units (as in cognitive semantics), linguists began exploring other aspects of language and speech acts from a cognitive perspective - from cognitive grammar and construction grammar to interpretation of 'texts' in terms of cognitive text linguistics. This concerns not only cognitive processes underlying text production and their linguistic manifestations, but also conventionalized knowledge activated through 'text types' and the corresponding processing mechanisms. In this sense, texts can also be understood as 'symbolic forms' that embody relevant cognitive models.

The 22nd LIPP-symposium, focussing on aspects within this paradigm, will discuss new research approaches in the field of cognitive text linguistics. The title 'Text - World - Models' addresses three essential components of this field of text linguistics: 'texts' as internally structured, more or less distinctive symbolic units, 'cognitive models' as schematized knowledge structures reflected and represented in text types, and 'world(s)' as a basis for the cognitive, cultural and praxeological categorization of knowledge.

The 22nd LIPP-symposium is organised by doctoral students of the Graduate School of Language & Literatur Munich - Class of Language. The symposium will discuss new research approaches in the field of cognitive text linguistics.

2nd Call for Papers:

The symposium is guided by the following questions: What are the relations between language, perception, and mental models? How can texts be understood as symbolic units which represent these mental models? Which linguistic features are significant for the constitution of linguistic units as 'text'? How does our knowledge of textual structures interact with our grammatical knowledge? To what extent do texts and text types reflect different ways of categorizing cognitive models and how can these ways be situated in the context of 'speaker/listener worlds'? In which ways are these 'worlds' constituted and socially transmitted? How does the episodic, emotive and praxeological knowledge of text producer and text recipient affect the construction of the mental 'worlds'?
