Abstract:

In contemporary linguistics, both cognitive and critical approaches to
language have been elaborated in some detail. Unfortunately, the two
perspectives have seldom converged, despite the potential theoretical
advances such collaboration offers. The contributions to this volume
explore the convergence of cognitive and critical trends in the guise of
cognitive linguistics and critical discourse analysis. The volume addresses
a range of socio-political discourses in various international contexts,
including discourses on nation, education, immigration, and war. One single
integrated model is not presented, but rather, a number of methodologies
are developed and assessed across the chapters. The application of
established cognitive linguistic theories, including conceptual metaphor
theory, conceptual blending theory and frame semantics, are discussed, as
well as developing theories, such as metaphor power theory and discourse
space theory. The book is of value to anyone interested in the interaction
between language, mind, and society, including both students and scholars
of cognitive linguistics and critical discourse analysis.
