PLM2008 :: 11-14 September 2008


The Poznań Linguistic Meeting (PLM) is an annual general linguistics conference that continues the tradition of the Polish-English contrastive conferences started by Jacek Fisiak in 1970. The name "Poznań Linguistic Meeting" was adopted in 1997, when Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk took over as the Head of the Organising Committee. The Meetings are organised by the School of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań. Materials from past PLMs are archived here.


The 39th Poznan Linguistic Meeting (PLM2008) took place on 11-14 September 2008 in Gniezno, Poland.

The leitmotif of the 39th PLM was Language, brain and mind: Recent linguistic, neurolinguistic and psycholinguistic perspectives
