The total body of papers presented in this volume captures research across
a variety of languages and language groups, to show how particular elements
of linguistic description draw on otherwise separate aspects (or fields) of
linguistic investigation. As such, this volume captures a diversity of
research interest from the field of cognitive linguistics. These areas
include: lexical semantics, cognitive grammar, metaphor, prototypes,
pragmatics, narrative and discourse, computational and translation models;
and are considered within the contexts of: language change, child language
acquisition, language and culture, grammatical features and word order and
gesture. Despite possible differences in philosophical approach to the role
