Abstract:

Cognitive Linguistics, the branch of linguistics that tries to "make one's
account of human language accord with what is generally known about the
mind and the brain," has become one of the most flourishing fields of
contem- porary linguistics. The chapters address many classic topics of
Cognitive Linguistics. These topics include studies on the semantics of
specific words (including polysemy and synonymy) as well as semantic
charac- teristics of particular syntactic patterns / constructions
(including constructional synonymy and the schema- ticity of
constructions), the analysis of causatives, transi- tivity, and
image-schematic aspects of posture verbs.

The key characteristic of this volume is that all papers adopt the
methodological perspective of Corpus Linguistics, the rapidly evolving
branch of linguistics based on the computerized analysis of language used
in au- thentic settings. Thus, the contributions do not only all provide
various new insights in their respective fields, they also introduce new
data as well as new corpus-based and quantitative methods of analysis. On
the basis of their findings, the authors discuss both theoretical
implications going well beyond the singular topics of the studies and show
how the discipline of Cognitive Linguistics can benefit from the rigorous
analysis of naturally-occurring language. The languages which are
investigated are English, German, Dutch, and Russian, and the data come
from a variety of different corpora. As such, the present volume will be of
interest to a wide range of scholars with many different foci and interests
and should pave the way for further integration of usage-based techniques
of analysis within this exciting paradigm.
