As a usage-based language theory, cognitive linguistics is predestined
to have an impact on applied research in such areas as language in
society, ideology, language acquisition, language pedagogy. The 28th
International LAUD Symposium, held at the University of Koblenz-Landau
on March 27-30, 2000, was one of the first to concentrate on "Applied
Cognitive Linguistics" - more particularly on the links between the
theory and its application in the areas of language acquisition and
language pedagogy. Although cognitive linguistics is a rapidly
expanding linguistic paradigm, the impact of this linguistic theory on
various branches of applied research and on their pedagogical
implications is only now beginning to be felt. The present volumes are
a first systematic attempt to carve out pathways from the links
between language and cognition to the fields of language acquisition
and language pedagogy and to deal with them in one coherent framework:
applied cognitive linguistics.
