The contributions contained in the second volume of the two-volume set
Body, Language and Mind introduce and elaborate upon the concept of
sociocultural situatedness, understood broadly as the way in which minds
and cognitive processes are shaped, both individually and collectively, by
their interaction with socioculturally contextualized structures and
practices; and, furthermore, how these structures interact, contextually,
with language and can become embodied in it.

Drawing on theoretical concepts and analytical tools within the purview of
cognitive linguistics and related fields, the volume explores the
relationship between body, language and mind, focusing on the complex
mutually reinforcing relationships holding between the sociocultural
contextualisation of language and, inversely, the linguistic
contextualisation of culure. Stated differently, the notion of
sociocultural situatedness allows for language to be seen as a cultural
activity and at the same time as a subtle mechanism for organizing culture
and thought.

The volume offers a representative, multi- and interdisciplinary collection
of new papers on sociocultural situatedness, bringing together for the
first time a wide variety of perspectives and case studies directed
explicitly to elucidating the analytical potential of this concept for
cognitive linguists and other researchers working in allied fields such as
AI, discourse studies and cognitive anthropology. The book brings together
several core issues related to the notion of sociocultural situatedness,
some of which have been addressed previously, although to a large degree
sporadically and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives without fully
exploring the possible analytical advantages of this concept as a tool for
investigating the role of culturally entrenched schemata in cognition and

In short, this is the first comprehensive survey of sociocultural
situatedness theory.
