About CLDC

The 8th Conference on Language, Discourse, and Cognition (CLDC 2016) will be held from May 13th to 14th in 2016, 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. Topics relevant to language, discourse, and cognition as well as 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 2016 meeting continues to attract a greater number of international researchers to participate in the dialogue. CLDC 2016 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 "LANGUAGE VARIATION AND COGNITION."
