Welcome To The UK Cognitive Linguistics Association

Overview of the UK-CLA

The central objectives of the UK-CLA are to develop and promote the multi-disciplinary field of Cognitive Linguistics within the UK, as well as contribute to the research- and event-based synergy currently growing across Europe, and to foster initiatives and exchanges at the wider international level.   To this end, the Association organises a biennial UK-based conference in Cognitive Linguistics (see events).  

Membership of the UK-CLA is achieved by subscribing to the Association's journal Language & Cognition. Details on how to subscribe to the journal can be found at the journal website here.  From 2014, the journal will be published by Cambridge University Press, and subscription for 2014 will be offered at a special promotional discount of half price.  Subscription is available in the following options: online only, or online plus print.  Subscription includes automatic electronic access to all back issues.    

In addition, the Association strongly supports contacts and cooperation between its members, the development of research projects, curricula and international graduate and doctoral programmes in Cognitive Linguistics, as well as the organisation of conferences, workshops, and other relevant events (see links and events).  

A key aspect of the work undertaken by the Association is cooperation with other Cognitive Linguistics Associations, under the auspices of the International Cognitive Linguistics Association (see links).   To find out more about the Association and get involved in its activities, please subscribe to the UK-CLA mailing list.

The UK-CLA is affiliated to the International Cognitive Linguistics Association and the Linguistics Association of Great Britain.
