Meeting Description:

The 2009 annual meeting of the SHESL* (Société d'Histoire et d'Epistémologie des
Sciences du Langage) will be dedicated to the history and epistemology of
Cognitive Linguistics. The conference is co-organized by the CNRS Research Group
on the History of Linguistic Theories (HTL Group, UMR 7597 - University of Paris

The expression 'Cognitive Linguistics' designates theories which base their
analysis of linguistic structure on meaning and on general-purpose cognitive
processes, and which identify meaning with mental representations and operations.

The conference aims to advance the understanding of the historical development
of cognitive linguistics and of its relation to other theories. It also seeks to
provide a forum for expounding and critically examining the theoretical notions
and descriptive tools which have been elaborated or adopted by Cognitive
Linguistics, and which are characteristic of the way it envisages language.

The SHESL 2009 conference on the history of cognitive linguistics will be held
in Paris on January 30-31. The program and all the practical information related
to the conference are available on the event's website :

* Grammaire Générale (Beauzée's ideas on language and thought)
* Dumarsais, Beauzée and the cognitive theory of figures of speech
* Cognitive linguistics in the French tradition (Gustave Guillaume and his legacy)
* The contemporary history of cognitive linguistics - the second ''cognitive
* The history of the ''cognitive turn'' (in the 60s-70s) - its consequences for

* The relation of cognitive linguistics to functional linguistics
