Abstract:

From the point of view of psychology and cognitive science, much of
modern linguistics is too formal and mathematical to be of much
use. The newly emerging approaches to language termed "Functional and
Cognitive Linguistics," however, are much less formally oriented and
are typically couched in terms that are already familiar to cognitive
scientists, such as perception, attention, conceptualization, meaning,
and symbols. The account of human linguistic competence emerging from
this new paradigm should be extremely useful to scientists studying
how human beings--not formal devices--comprehend, produce, and acquire
natural languages.

The current volume brings together 10 of the most important linguists
in cognitive and functional linguistics whose work is often not easily
available to those outside the field. Of special importance to all the
contributions are the cognitive and social interactional processes
that constitute human linguistic communication. The book should be of
interest to psychologists, cognitive scientists, psycholinguists, and
developmental psycholinguists--in addition to those linguists taking a
more psychological approach to language.
