The 3rd Conference on Usage-Based Linguistics


Jerusalem, Israel
3-5 July 2017

The conference aims to bring together researchers who study language structure and use from a wide range of perspectives (linguistic, typological, developmental, psycholinguistic, computational). This year’s special theme is the relation between language processing and language typology and change: how do cognitive biases affect how language is structured and how it changes over time? The keynote speakers include: Ruth Berman (Tel Aviv University), Jennifer Culberston (University of Edinburgh), and Martin Hilpert (University of Neuchâtel). Original papers are invited, which adopt an empirical approach to language, including (but not limited to) corpus-based, computational and experimental approaches.


Deadline for abstract submission: 1 February 2017
