The 7th Conference on Language, Discourse, and Cognition (CLDC 2014) will be held from May 3rd to 4th in 2014, and co-hosted by Graduate Institute of Linguistics, Department of Psychology, Neurobiology and Cognitive Science Center at National Taiwan University, and Linguistic Society of Taiwan.

The CLDC aims to provide a forum for researchers interested in language, discourse, and cognition to discuss new research findings, exchange innovative ideas and share the approaches in these fields. Although CLDC was launched only six years ago, the topics relevant to language, discourse, and cognition as well as the interdisciplinary studies stimulated over the last few years have given rise to a growing body of critical findings, making CLDC an important event in the field of cognitive linguistics in East Asia. We hope that the CLDC 2014 meeting will continue to attract a greater number of international researchers to participate in the dialogue.

The 7th Conference on Language, Discourse, and Cognition (CLDC 2014) aims at research in cognitive linguistics and interdisciplinary studies. The meeting will be comprised of a general theme of ¡§COGNITIVE LINGUISTICS AND INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES¡¨ and a special theme of ¡§BODY EXPERIENCE AND LANGAUGE PROCESSING.¡¨
