Meeting Description: In order to foster discussion and work on phonology within the cognitive linguistic framework, the proposed theme session aims to bring together contributions dealing with the role of phonology in language as well as phonological issues from a cognitive/functional linguistic perspective. Both empirical and theoretical contributions are welcome.


Phonology is in no way less conceptual than other areas of linguistic research such as semantics or grammar. Yet it has been much neglected in cognitive linguistics, although a few researchers have explored various ways of rethinking phonology within cognitive linguistics (see e.g. Mompean, 2014; Nathan, 2015).

In order to foster discussion and work on phonology within the cognitive linguistic framework, the proposed theme session aims to bring together contributions dealing with the role of phonology in language as well as phonological issues from a cognitive/functional linguistic perspective. Both empirical and theoretical contributions are welcome.

This panel invites researchers and scholars working on the phonology of languages as well as other areas (semantics, grammar, discourse, sociolinguistics, language acquisition, historical linguistics, etc.) where phonology is perceived as playing an important role.

Topics include, but are not limited to, categorization and prototype effects, the phonology of symbolic units and constructions, usage-based aspects of phonology, phonetic, sociolinguistic and cultural motivation of phonological units, iconicity in phonology, relationships between phonology and other gestural and non-verbal communication, etc.

Prospective contributors or participants at the theme session less familiar with phonology work in this framework can read further information about the view of phonology held for the theme session in the references provided below.
