Abstract:

Cognitive Exploration of Language and Linguistics is designed as a
comprehensive introductory text for first and second-year university
students of language and linguistics. It provides a chapter on each of
the more established areas in linguistics such as lexicology,
morphology, syntax, phonetics and phonology, historical linguistics,
and language typology and on some of the newer areas such as
cross-cultural semantics, pragmatics, text linguistics and contrastive
linguistics.

In each of these areas language is explored as part of a cognitive
system comprising perception, emotion, categorisation, abstraction
processes, and reasoning. All these cognitive abilities may interact
with language and be influenced by language. Thus the study of
language in a sense becomes the study of the way we express and
exchange ideas and thoughts.

This Second Revised Edition is corrected, updated and expanded.

Cognitive Exploration of Language and Linguistics is clearly presented
and organized after having been tested in several courses in various
countries.

Includes exercises (solutions to be found on the Internet).
