The present volume contains a selection of papers presented at the
conference Cognitive Approaches to English, an international event
organized to mark the 30th anniversary of English studies at the Faculty of
Philosophy, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University, Osijek, which was held in
Osijek on October 18-19, 2007. The participants were invited to discuss
issues in cognitive accounts of English, ranging from fundamental to
methodological to interdisciplinary and applied. The volume is accordingly
divided into four parts.
Part I, Motivation in grammar, deals with various phenomena in the grammar
of English in the broadest sense of the term, all of which are shown to be
motivated by metaphorical and/or metonymic operations.
Part II, Constructing meaning (between grammar and lexicon), contains five
chapters dealing with phenomena ranging from various peculiarities of
form-meaning pairings (such as synonymy, polysemy, and figurative meanings)
to concept formation.
The four chapters that make up Part III are concerned with the phenomenon
of interlinguistic and intercultural variation in the use of metaphorical
and metonymic processes.
The volume is concluded by Part IV, the three papers of which attempt to
reconsider some TEFL issues from a cognitive linguistic point of view.
