Introduction

The last few years have seen a growing interest for Cognitive Linguistics in France, resulting in new studies and stimulating exchanges. After various cognitively-oriented conferences and workshops, it was time to establish in France a more general hub for discussion, which motivated the creation of the French Association for Cognitive Linguistics (AFLiCo) in 2005.

Although Cognitive Linguistics is the main focus of the AFLiCo, the association aims to maintain a constructive and profitable discussion with the various French theoretical approaches in linguistics. In doing so, it will differ from the International Cognitive Linguistics Association (www.cognitivelinguistics.org), with which the AFLiCo is also associated since its creation. The AFliCo aims to include French scholars working in various theoretical frameworks and to encourage them to take an active part in its activities.
