About the conference

The Third Conference of the Scandinavian Association of Language and Cognition (SALC III) took place at the University of Copenhagen on June 14 2011 - June 16th 2011.

The conference included, but was not limited to the following themes:

  • cognitive impairment and language use
  • language acquisition and cognition
  • language and cognitive development and evolution
  • language and consciousness
  • language and gesture
  • language change and cognition
  • language structure and cognition
  • language use and cognition
  • linguistic relativity
  • linguistic typology and cognition
  • psycholinguistic approaches to language and cognition
  • specific language impairment

After the constituting meeting of SALC at an international conference in Umeå 2006, earlier conferences in this series were held in Lund 2007 and Stockholm 2009. At the Stockholm conference the Swedish Association of Language and Cognition was transformed to the Scandinavian Association of Language and Cognition ( SALC).

The major goal of SALC is to promote the study of the relationship between language and cognition in the Nordic countries and more generally. This involves any type of research in which language is not treated in isolation (e.g. as a "module"), but both as based on structures and processes of general cognition and social cognition, and as affecting such structures and processes. The conference is intended to be a forum for cooperation and exchange of ideas between disciplines, fields of study and theoretical frameworks for the study of language and cognition.
