The 4th International Conference on Metaphor in Language and Thought is already an important event for the metaphor research community and the international Cognitive Linguistics community at large, and has counted on the participation of over 250 researchers from all over the world. The conference is concerned with all aspects of Cognitive Linguistics, but this one has a recurring theme of Metaphor: Culture and Nature.

The Conference will bring together researchers and scholars from all around the world interested in the role of metaphor in language and thought. We are welcoming abstracts about all topics related to the Conference’s theme, such as metaphor and teaching; metaphor and culture; metaphor in different theoretical-methodological views; identification and processing of metaphors; metaphor and neurosciences; and metaphor and discourse. Further information is available on the event’s website http://www.ufrgs.br/iletras/ivcmlp.

The 4th International Conference on Metaphor in Language and Thought is held by the research group SEMÁFORO – Forum on Cognitive Semantics - in association with Graduate Program for Language Studies of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil).
