Abstract:

"Cognate Object Constructions in English…" is the first comprehensive
description of linguistic expressions such as 'Both died an unheroic death'
or 'Jamie grinned his tired grin', viewed from a Cognitive Linguistic
perspective. Redefining the category of "cognate objects", the book
provides a systematic account of prototypical and less prototypical
instances of this pattern. Based on real-usage data from the BNC, the study
presents a family of constructions which are equipped with their own
syntactic and lexical idiosyncrasies and their own semantic-pragmatic
functions, such as event structuring and event intensification. In a
step-by-step fashion, the author develops a network of constructional
schemas ranging from abstract to concrete, thereby investigating and
corroborating the plausibility of a lexis-syntax continuum - one of the
main assumptions of the Cognitive Linguistics enterprise.

The book offers important insight on concepts such as argument structure
and transitivity and demonstrates the fruitful interrelationship between
Cognitive Linguistics and statistical corpus linguistics.
