Two PhD projects are now underway at the Vrije Universiteit (Amsterdam) on cognitive linguistic theories of grammar seen in relation to multimodal spoken communication, and in connection with them we have started two new readings groups:
— an introduction to cognitive grammar and construction grammar, and
— an introduction to gesture studies.
Each of the groups will meet at the VU about once a week on days/times determined within the groups. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for the grammar group, the gesture group, or both, please e-mail Alan Cienki at a [dot] cienki [at] vu [dot] nl.
