 Abstract:
 
 In this book, Michel Achard and Suzanne Kemmer present thirty-five original
 essays bringing together work at the crossroads of linguistics, psychology,
 philosophy, cognitive science, and related fields. These contributions
 apply a range of methodologies and perspectives to the problem of the
 relation of language to human culture and cognition, with an emphasis on
 how language is produced and understood in context. Topics considered
 include human categorization, cognitive and cultural models, embodiment,
 and the experiential basis of categories and conceptual structures, lexical
 and constructional semantics, and the distribution and formal properties of
 linguistic elements and constructions in a wide variety of languages.
 
 Some perspectives and methodologies represented among the papers are
 corpus-based methodologies, discourse analysis, language acquisition,
 contrastive analysis, psycholinguistic experimentation, and language change
 and grammaticalization. Some theoretical frameworks deployed in the various
 analyses are Cognitive Grammar, Construction Grammar, Metaphor theory, and
 Mental Space and Blending Theory.
