This volume has its origins in a theme session entitled: "Lexical and
Grammatical Classification: Same or Different?" from the Fifth
International Cognitive Linguistics Conference. It includes theme
session presentations, additional papers from that conference, and
several invited contributions. All the articles explore the
relationship between lexical and grammatical categories, both
illustrating the close interaction, as well as questioning the strict
dichotomy, between them. This volume promotes a holistic view of
classification reflecting functional, cognitive, communication, and
sign-oriented approaches to language which have been applied to both
the grammar and the lexicon.

The volume is divided into two parts. Part I, Number and Gender
Systems Across Languages, is further subdivided into three sections:
(1) Noun Classification; (2) Number Systems; and (3) Gender
Systems. Part II, Verb Systems and Parts of Speech Across Languages,
is divided into two sections: (1) Tense and Aspect and (2) Parts of
Speech. The analyses represent a diverse range of languages and
language families: Bantu (Swahili), Guaykuruan (Pilag�), Indo-European
(English, Russian, Polish, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Spanish) and Semitic

Constructions in Cognitive Linguistics.
Selected papers from the Fifth International Cognitive Linguistics
Conference, Amsterdam, 1997.
Ad FOOLEN (University of Nijmegen) and Frederike van der LEEK (University 
of Amsterdam) (eds.)

This volume contains selected papers from the 5th ICLC, Amsterdam
1997. The papers present cognitive analyses of a variety of
constructions (phrasal verbs, prepositional phrases, transitivity,
accusative versus dative objects, possessives, gerunds, passives,
causatives, conditionals), in a variety of languages (English, German,
Dutch, Polish, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Thai, Fijian). Besides
analyses of 'objective construal', the volume reflects the increasing
interest in subjectivity (grounding and speaker involvement). It also
includes, lastly, contributions on the acquisition and agrammatic loss
of constructions.
