"Cognitive Linguistics: Current Applications and Future Perspectives" is an
up-to-date survey of recent research in Cognitive Linguistics and its
applications by prominent researchers. The volume brings together generally
accessible syntheses and special studies of Cognitive Linguistics strands
in a sizable format and is thus an asset not only to the cognitive
linguistics community, but also to neighbouring disciplines and linguists
in general. The volume covers a wide range of fields and combines wide
accessibility with a highly specific information value.

Key Features
* An excellent source for the study of Applied Cognitive Linguistics, one
of the most popular and fastest growing areas in linguistics.
* Authoritative and detailed survey articles by leading scholars in the field.
* Accessible to a general audience, yet also characterized by a highly
specific information value.
