diachronic change, lexicalization, typology, corpus studies, on-line and
off-line psycholinguistic methods, L1 and L2 learning and performance,
contrastive analyses, and lexicographic issues).

Invited plenary speakers:
Cristina Cacciari (Modena): Collocations and idioms in language learning
Urpo Nikanne (Turku): Grammatical descriptions of idioms and related expressions
Michael Stubbs (Trier): Corpus-based studies on idioms and collocations

The conference language will be English, and the proceedings will be published
in early 2007 as a volume in the University of Joensuu's Studies in Languages
