Third and Final Call for Papers
The Sixth International Conference of the Scandinavian Association for Language and Cognition (SALC 6)
Centre for Languages and Literature, Lund University
April 20-22, 2017
The main goal of SALC is to promote the study of the relationship between language and cognition both in the Nordic countries and more generally. This involves any type of research in which language is not treated in isolation, but as based on structures and processes of general cognition and social cognition, and as affecting such structures and processes. The conference is intended to be a forum for cooperation and exchange of ideas between disciplines, fields of study and theoretical frameworks for the study of language and cognition.
