The 2007 Conference will deal with issues in
linguistic theory in its wider discursive, cognitive
and typological perspective. Papers dealing with
further elaboration of RRG in areas like morphology,
syntax, semantics, information structure, as well as
language processing are encouraged. The workshops
will include lecture sessions at three levels:
introductory, graduate and specialized. The
introductory and graduate sessions will be taught in
Spanish and will provide the basics and core
theoretical principles of RRG for those not yet
acquainted with the theory. The specialized workshops
will deal with advanced topics on RRG, and will be
presented by RRG specialists.
Abstracts must be received electronically by March 31,
2007 at 2007RRG at gmail.com. Abstracts should be no
longer than two pages, including data and references,
and must be submitted as Word documents (a PDF version
is also required if special characters are included).
The abstracts should be anonymous. The email message
must include the following information: author’s
name(s), affiliation, email address, and title of

minutes for discussion.
