The 2014 conference focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of linguistics in the field of language competence and use. This meeting aims to showcase the current diversity of the field of linguistics and the blurring of the boundaries between linguistics and other domains of study concerned with the structure, function and value of language.
The conference welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions that explore the principles that underlie language, as well as the anthropological, cultural, social and psychological issues that underpin language use.
