The 6th Conference on Languages, Discourse, and Cognition (CLDC 2012) will be held from May 4th to 6th in 2012, 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, as an annual international conference, aims to provide a forum for researchers interested in language, discourse, and cognition to report new research findings, exchange innovative ideas and share their frameworks in these areas. Although CLDC was launched only five years ago, the topics relevant to language, discourse, and cognition themes as well as the interdisciplinary exchange stimulated over the last few years have given rise to a growing body of critical findings, making CLDC an important annual event in the fields of Cognitive Linguistics/Functional Linguistics in East Asia. We hope that the CLDC 2012 meeting will continue to attract a greater number of international researchers to participate in the dialog.

The CLDC 2012 will focus on research associated with Cognitive Linguistics /Functional Linguistics and interdisciplinary research. The meeting will be comprised of a general session with the theme of “COGNITIVE LINGUISTICS/ FUNCTIONAL LINGUISTICS AND INTERDISCIPLNARY STUDIES” and a special session with the theme of “EMOTION, LANGUAGE, and COGNITION.”
