Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
The conference will consider language (or conversing) as situated in the context
of interaction, action, and perception. We will explore how conversing can be
understood as distributed, dialogical, and directed (i.e., intentional,
normative) modes of interaction, perception, and action. Theoretical, empirical,
interpretive, and methodological issues will be given attention. Most
particularly, this meeting will bring ecological and dynamical systems
researchers together with distributed language researchers.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
