Description

Like all previous ICLCs, ICLC 11, Xi'an will be a gathering of cognitive linguists to present their most recent research in the study of language. We invite abstracts that subscribe to the assumption that language is part of human cognition, not an autonomous and separate system.  Language is seen as influenced and, to a large extent, even determined by forces not only within it but also outside it—factors of general human cognitive capacities as well as factors that result from the diversity of societies, cultural groups, discourse types, and communicative modes.

As such, presentations at ICLC 11, Xi'an may be on any facet of human language—including the non-verbal—from any cognitive linguistics perspective. The following general areas are provided as a sampler, not an exclusive list of possibilities: cognitive grammar, cognitive semantics, construction grammar, conceptual metaphor, conceptual integration, embodiment of language, cognitive psycholinguistics, cognitive sociolinguistics, cognitive stylistics, cognitive applied linguistics, corpus linguistics, and application of a cognitive linguistics theory to other disciplines.

ICLC 11, Xi'an will hold a general session, theme sessions, and a poster session. Presentations for the general session and theme sessions will be allotted 25 minutes, with 20 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. The poster session will be given a two-hour time window, without competing with the general session or the theme sessions.
