'Manner' in the Theory of Language


The program also includes the workshop "Formal approaches to language as a cognitive system" organized by Urpo Nikanne (Åbo Akademi, Finland) and Mila Vulchanova (NTNU, Norway). The detailed program will be available at the conference website in August. Below is a short description of the workshop.

There are several cognitively oriented approaches in linguistics. Some of them (Conceptual Semantics, Sign-theory, Construction Grammar, etc.) are based on formalization in their theory building and treating language as a part of an integrated theory of mind. The workshop concentrates on finding possible topics and research areas in which these theories are ready to make a break-through in near future.

The participants of the workshop include: Mila Vulchanova (NTNU, Norway), Matthias Weissgerber (Konstanz, Germany), Urpo Nikanne (Åbo Akademi University, Finland), Liliana Martinez (NTNU, Norway), Geda Paulsen (Åbo Akademi University, Finland), Oksana Petrova (Åbo Akademi University, Finland), Michaela Pörn (Åbo Akademi, Finland), and Esa Itkonen (University of Turku, Finland).
