(ICLFF)

Call for Papers
The International Conference on Language Form and Function (ICLFF) is to be hosted by the School of Foreign Languages, Soochow University, from March 27-29, 2015.
In both generative and functional writings, we find lots of insightful generalizations about the relationship between language form and function, some of which are fully compatible with one another while others are seemingly not. Both approaches are hugely beneficial to all researchers who are trying to uncover the secrets of languages; and moreover, interfaces between the different modules in the Language Faculty (such as the syntax-pragmatics interface), and interfaces between the Language Faculty and the other cognitive systems in the human brain, are hot issues in current linguistic studies as well as in current multidisciplinary studies. It is therefore timely and important for scholars from all relevant areas of the language sciences to come together and present their latest research on language form and function and to learn from each other's recent insights. This is exactly the goal of the ICLFF.
Paper submissions to the ICLFF are invited on original and unpublished research addressing any aspects of the interaction of language form and function under any framework. Abstracts can be written in either English or Chinese and are limited to one single-spaced A4 page. Please send two copies as attachments by e-mail to iclff2015@126.com. The first copy should be an Microsoft Word document with the following information: (i) author’s name(s); (ii) affiliation(s); (iii) email address(es). For reviewing purposes, the second copy should be an anonymous PDF document with the above information deleted. For detailed information, please visit http://sfl.suda.edu.cn/ICLFF. Contact number: 0512-65241104.

“形式与功能:语言学国际学术研讨会”征稿启事

国内外学者针对语言的形式和功能做出了许多富有洞察力的重要发现,近些年国内外学者还围绕语言官能内部不同模块之间的接口以及语言官能与人脑其他认知系统之间的接口进行了研究和思考,为语言学各分支领域和其他相关学科的相互借鉴和发展做出了巨大贡献。为了进一步推进研究和交流,2015年3月27-29日,苏州大学外国语学院将举办“形式与功能:语言学国际学术研讨会”(《外国语》编辑部为协办单位之一)。我们诚邀您参加本次会议。请您在2014年10月31日前将论文摘要(英文或中文)以email附件形式发送至iclff2015@126.com。会议详情请访问:http://sfl.suda.edu.cn/ICLFF。
