Abstract:

The book testifies of the great tolerance of Cognitive Linguists towards
internal variety within itself and towards external interaction with major
linguistic subdisciplines. Internally, it opens up the broad variety of CL
strands and the cognitive unity between convergent linguistic disciplines.
Externally, it provides a wide overview of the connections between
cognition and social, psychological, pragmatic, and discourse-oriented
dimensions of language, which will make this book attractive to scholars
from different persuasions. The book is thus expected to raise productive
debate inside and outside the CL community. Furthermore, the book examines
interdisciplinary connections from the point of view of the internal
dynamics of CL research itself. CL is rapidly developing into different
compatible frameworks with extensions into levels of linguistics
description like discourse, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics among others
that have only recently been taken into account in this orientation.

The book covers two general topics: (i) the relationship between the
embodied nature of language, cultural models, and social action; (ii) the
role of metaphor and metonymy in inferential activity and as generators of
discourse ties. More specific topics are the nature and scope of
constructional meaning, language variation and cultural models; discourse
acts; the relationship between communication and cognition, the
argumentative role of metaphor in discourse, the role of mental spaces in
linguistic processing, and the role of empirical work in CL research. These
features endow the book with internal unity and consistency while
preserving the identity of each of the contributions therein.
