The 4th International Conference on Figurative Thought and Language (FTL4) aims to continue as a forum for the discussion of links between figurative thought and language started at previous events in Thessaloniki (2014), Pavia (2015) and Osijek (2017). We invite contributions from various theoretical and applied perspectives (e.g. cognitive linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, cognitive semiotics, cognitive poetics, cognitive anthropology and philosophy of mind), and methodologies (e.g. corpus studies, experimental techniques, synchronic and diachronic analyses, critical discourse analysis, sociovariational analysis, cross-linguistic and cross-cultural comparison, translation). FTL4 will feature theme sessions and a general session.
