 Lexical and grammatical meaning 
 Conversational practice 
 Form and function

 Conceptual structure
 Iconicity in language
 Metaphor as a cognitive phenomenon

 Social interaction and grammar
 Sentence processing

We also invite abstracts for the special poster session on Discourse
and Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC). Specific areas of inquiry
at the session will include, but not be limited to:

 CMC as a force in linguistic and cognitive change
 Specialized lexical and typographic registers of CMC
 Emergent communication norms in CMC
 Discourse analysis of CMC
 Discourse styles in the virtual classroom and virtual 
 Continuities between CMC and other discourse genres

Message 2: Cognitive Morphology

Date: Fri, 06 Feb 1998 13:17:10
From: Christof Vanden Eynde <>
Subject: Cognitive Morphology



2-4 July 1998, University of Ghent, Belgium

The Belgian cognitive linguistics research group organizes a workshop
on cognitive linguistic approaches to morphology. The workshop aims to
bring together researchers who work on morphology within a cognitive
linguistic framework, or within a framework compatible with the
cognitive linguistic approach. The workshop will focus on derivational
rather than on inflectional morphology. invited speakers who have so
far agreed to attend the workshop include John Taylor, David Tuggy,
and Jaap van Marle.

topics of specific interest include:
. polysemy of morphemes
. iconicity in derivation and composition
. network analyses of morphological productivity
. basic morphological categories and typological universals
. the interface of storage and computation in morphology
. cognitive morphology and related theories.

We would like to invite you to contribute to this workshop with a
paper. If you want to present an original paper dealing with any
aspect of derivation or composition within the framework of cognitive
morphology, send an abstact (max. 300 words) to the following

Hard copies can be sent to:
Christof Vanden Eynde
Nederlandse Taalkunde
Universiteit Gent
Blandijnberg 2
9000 GENT
fax: ++32/(0)9/264.41.70

The deadline for submission of the abstracts is March 1 1998.
Potential speakers whose paper has been accepted will be notified
before APRIL 1.

In priciple, presentations are limited to 45 minutes (30 minutes + 15
minutes discussion).

The organization of the workshop is supported by the Flemish research
council (FWO-Vlaanderen). For all active participants in the workshop,
funding will be available. We cannot yet, however, determine the
available sum at this point.

In order to achieve maximum interaction during the workshop, the
number of participants may have to be restricted. if you intend to
attend the workshop without presenting a paper, please inform the
organizers before march 1.
