The attention devoted to the linguistics of the English language has resulted in a broad body of work in diverse research traditions. The aim of the ICLCE conference is to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between different frameworks and research traditions, all of which may address any aspect of the linguistics of English. The first and second ICLCE conferences were held in Edinburgh (2005) and Toulouse (2007) along the same lines.
