- Bangor was inundated with Cognitive Linguists. We shared the uni and the surrounding pubs with fish people from the Annual Fish Synposium. They seemed fun!
- Vyv Evans kicked things off with the first plenary talk on Tuesday morning.

- Our second plenary talk was from Penelope Brown who swiftly departed for Papua New Guinea to do some fieldwork!
- The wine reception and poster session was followed by a student social evening at The Greek where our linguistic knoweldge was tested to the limits with a linguistic quiz.
- Day 2 began with Dedre Genter and was, thankfully, not as hot and sticky as Tuesday!
