The central objectives of the UK-CLA are to develop and promote the multi-disciplinary field of Cognitive Linguistics within the UK, as well as contribute to the research- and event-based synergy currently growing across Europe, and to foster initiatives and exchanges at the wider international level. To this end, the Association organises a biennial UK-based conference in Cognitive Linguistics.  

Membership of the UK-CLA is achieved by subscribing to the Association's journal Language & Cognition, published by Cambridge University Press. Subscription is available in the following options: online only, or online plus print.  Subscription includes automatic electronic access to all back issues.

In addition, the Association strongly supports contacts and cooperation between its members, the development of research projects, curricula and international graduate and doctoral programmes in Cognitive Linguistics, as well as the organisation of conferences, workshops, and other relevant events.
