The French Association for Cognitive Linguistics (AFLiCo) is pleased to
launch a call for contributions to their on-line, peer-reviewed journal
CogniTextes. The journal is a forum for scientific exchange among
researchers in France and beyond working in, or with an interest in,
Cognitive Linguistics.
CogniTextes is one of the first on-line, peer-reviewed journals in
Cognitive Linguistics. Its editors, and its editorial board of
internationally renowned scholars, vouch for the scientific quality of
the journal. On-line access to the full text of the articles is free.
On-line publishing allows articles to include audio and/or video clips
which the reader can listen to or view without leaving the text. This
facility is invaluable for illustrating research in fields such as sign
language or gesture.
CogniTextes publishes articles in English and French. Authors need not
be AFLiCo members.

Cognitive Linguistics is an umbrella term for a number of related
theories including Cognitive Grammar, (Radical) Construction Grammar,
Conceptual Metaphor Theory, Conceptual Blending Theory, etc. Unlike
so-called formal theories of language, such as Generative Grammar and
its derivatives, all these approaches adopt a usage-based view of
language in that they claim that our linguistic knowledge, from the most
concrete level to the most abstract, derives from usage. Cognitive
Linguistics emphasizes the symbolic nature of grammar, which is viewed
not as an autonomous system of representation, but rather as an
inventory of symbolic units that organize conceptual content in a
conventional manner. Each symbolic form thus captures some
socio-physical or conceptual human experience.
Cognitive Linguistics has something in common with certain cognitivist
theories developed mainly in France over recent decades, such as the
Theory of Metaoperations, the Theory of Enunciative Operations and the
recent Theory of Semantic Forms. For their interest to the wider
cognitive linguistic research community, CogniTextes welcomes
contributions that are inspired by these theories, and that explore
points of convergence and divergence between Cognitive Linguistics and
cognitivist approaches of the French tradition. As its name suggests,
CogniTextes also welcomes papers on stylistics and discourse structure
from a cognitive perspective.
The primary goal of CogniTextes is to provide a publication forum for
researchers in the cognitive linguistic tradition as represented by the
International Cognitive Linguistics Association (ICLA), with which
AFLiCo is officially affiliated. The editorial board of CogniTextes has
been selected with a view to ensuring both the quality of the
publication and its relevance to Cognitive Linguistics.
