Abstract:

In this two-volume set Leonard Talmy defines the field of cognitive
semantics. He approaches the question of how language organizes
conceptual material both at a general level and by analyzing a crucial
set of particular conceptual domains: space and time, motion and
location, causation and force interaction, and attention and
viewpoint. Talmy maintains that these are among the most fundamental
parameters by which language structures conception. By combining these
conceptual domains into an integrated whole, Talmy shows, we advance
our understanding of the overall conceptual and semantic structure of
natural language. Volume 1 examines the fundamental systems by which
language shapes concepts. Volume 2 sets forth typologies according to
which concepts are structured and the processes by which they are
structured.

Leonard Talmy is Director of the Center for Cognitive Science and
Professor of Linguistics at the State University of New York at
Buffalo.
