6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE SPANISH COGNITIVE LINGUISTICS ASSOCIATION (SCOLA)
Challenges for 21st Century Cognitive Linguistics

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
Castelló de la Plana, 22-24 October 2008
 
The Spanish Association of Cognitive Linguistics (SCOLA) aims at fostering linguistic research departing from the postulates of the theory known as “Cognitive Linguistics”.
 
This approach includes an ample variety of theoretical proposals that share a common denominator: the idea that language is an integral part of cognition and, therefore, must be understood within the context of conceptualization and mental processing; likewise, it reflects the interaction of cultural, psychological, communicative, and functional aspects.
 
After the conferences held in Alicante (1998), Madrid (2000), Valencia (2002), Zaragoza (2004), and Murcia (2006), the 6th SCOLA conference will be held at University Jaume I (22-24 October 2008).
 
The Spanish Association belongs to the International branch, whose aim is to promote the study of the interaction between language and cognition, with particular emphasis on the use of language as an instrument to organize, process, and transmit information. Among the foundational topics of this research paradigm, the following may be considered as central ones:
 
- The structural characteristics of the categorization systems of natural languages (prototype effects, basic level categories, cognitive models).
 
- The functional principles of linguistic organization (e.g. iconicity).
 
- The conceptual interface between syntax and semantics.
 
- The relation between language and thought, including issues related to universality and linguistic specificity.
 
- The experiential basis of “language in use”, including cultural models, discursive context, and the psychological grounding of linguistic performance.
 
More recently, Cognitive Linguistics has become interested in the exploration of the implications of its postulates for functional and discursive models of language, with which it shares numerous aspects.
