Abstract:

Over the past decade, Cognitive Linguistics has grown to be one of the most
broadly appealing and dynamic frameworks for the study of natural language.
Essentially, this new school of linguistics focuses on the meaning side of
language: linguistic form is analysed as an expression of meaning. And
meaning itself is not something that exists in isolation, but it is
integrated with the full spectrum of human experience: the fact that we are
embodied beings just as much as the fact that we are cultural beings.

Cognitive Linguistics: Basic Readings brings together twelve foundational
articles, each of which introduces one of the basic concepts of Cognitive
Linguistics, such as conceptual metaphor, image schemas, mental spaces,
construction grammar, prototypicality and radial sets. The collection
features the founding fathers of Cognitive Linguistics: George Lakoff, Ron
Langacker, Len Talmy, Gilles Fauconnier, and Charles Fillmore, together
with some of the most influential younger scholars. By its choice of
seminal papers and leading authors, this book is specifically suited for an
introductory course in Cognitive Linguistics. This is further supported by
a general introduction to the theory and, specifically, the practice of
Cognitive Linguistics and by trajectories for further reading that start
out from the individual chapters.
