Abstract:

"Studies in Linguistics and Cognition" offers a comprehensive collection of
essays in the interdisciplinary fields of linguistics and cognition. These
essays explore the connections between cognitive approaches and different
theoretical and applied linguistic theories, such as pragmatics,
sociolinguistics, computational linguistics and semantics among others,
providing revealing insights into the nature of the cognitive processes
underlying language. The authors discuss a variety of fundamental questions,
ranging from the study of figurative language, phrasal verbs and humorous
discourse to the analysis of fuzzy concepts, attitude verbs and neologisms.
These and other related questions are dealt with in this integrative overview
of the linguistic and cognitive processes. The volume is structured in three
main sections, each corresponding to a distinct level of meaning description:
Section I deals with Lexicon and Cognition, Section II with Semantics and
Cognition and Section III with Communication and Cognition. This book
provides thought-provoking reading for linguists, pragmaticians,
psychologists, philosophers and cognitive scientists as well as scholars in
computational linguistics and natural language processing who are interested
in gaining a better understanding of the interface between cognition and
linguistics.
