Abstract:

NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK!

This volume makes accessible a substantial range of recent research in
Cognitive Grammar. From disparate sources, it brings together a dozen
innovative papers, revised and integrated to form a coherent whole. This
work continues the ongoing program of progressively articulating the
theoretical framework and showing its descriptive application to varied
grammatical phenomena.

A number of major topics are examined in depth through multiple chapters
viewing them from different perspectives: grammatical constructions (their
general nature, their metonymic basis, their role in grammaticization),
nominal grounding (quantifiers, possessives, impersonal it), clausal
grounding (its relation to nominal grounding, an epistemic account of tense,
a systemic view of the English auxiliary), the "control cycle" (an abstract
cognitive model with many linguistic manifestations), finite clauses (their
internal structure and external grammar), and complex sentences
(complementation, subordination, coordination). In each case the
presentation builds from fundamentals and introduces the background
needed for comprehension. At the same time, by bringing fresh approaches
and new descriptive insights to classic problems, it represents a significant
advance in understanding grammar and indicates future directions of theory
and research in the Cognitive Grammar framework.

The book is of great interest to students and practitioners of cognitive
linguistics and to scholars in related areas.
