This volume presents an entirely new, expanded cognitive view of language
by examining linguistic structure and its use in communication from the
point of view of memory, thus providing a novel way of analysing language.
The fourteen chapters, authored by linguists and psychologists, show the
need for such an approach and illustrate that the properties of numerous
linguistic structures reflect those of memory in various ways. Many
different methodologies are presented because of the interdisciplinary
nature of the volume, without reducing the comprehensibility and
comparability of the contributions. Core linguistic areas are discussed in
the contributions embracing syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse
analysis; psychological aspects are restrict-ed to memory systems and their

The introduction provides a concise overview of memory, and then three
sections examine linguistic phenomena from various angles relating them to
memory. In the first section, the contributions emphasize the issue of
syntagmatic vs. paradigmatic organization in various linguistic phenomena
with a focus on syntax and their locus in memory. The contributions in the
second part investigate structures with non-fixed functions showing that
they tend to be connected to a certain submemory sharing their features
such as subjectivity and evaluation. The concern of the last section is
discourse comprising coherence, evidentiality, politeness, and persuasion.

The book will be stimulating for researchers and students of linguistic
core areas as well as those occupied with developmental aspects and
theoretical aspects of language. It also provides new insights into methods
of analysis both in linguistics and in cognitive psychology. The individual
chapters are comprehensible to linguists who have no background in
psychology and to psychologists who have no background in linguistics.
