Abstract:

Research on the "embodiment hypothesis" within cognitive linguistics and
beyond is growing steadily aiming to bridge language, culture, and cognition.
This volume seeks to address the question regarding what specific roles
individual body parts play in the embodied conceptualization of emotions,
mental faculties, character traits, cultural values, and so on, in various cultures,
as manifested in their respective languages. It brings together some linguistic
evidence that sheds light on the embodied nature of human cognition from
languages as diverse as Arabic, Chinese, Danish, English, Estonian, German,
Greek, Indonesian, Japanese, Persian, Spanish, and Turkish. The studies in
this volume also show how embodiment is mediated in those languages through
such cognitive mechanisms as metonymy and metaphor.
