Call for papers

The 4th annual Usage-Based Linguistics conference, jointly organized by Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, will be held at the Tel Aviv University campus.

The conference aims to bring together researchers who study spoken and written language structure and use from a wide range of perspectives – typological, corpus, developmental, psycholinguistic, interaction-oriented, text-oriented, and computational. This year’s special theme is:

The contribution of real language data to linguistic theories.

We are delighted to have three invited speakers whose work touches on this theme from different perspectives:

We invite original papers, which adopt a Usage-Based Approach to the study of language,

  2. Posters
  3. Symposia, composed of five related 20-minute talks / four related 20-minute talks and a discussion + 20 minutes interactive discussion.
