Looking Back: We take stock of the past 25 years in cognitive linguistics. The year 2013 marks nearly 25 years since the 1989 Duisburg conference that solidified the cognitive linguistics approach, reified it in name, and established the journal, Cognitive Linguistics.

Looking Forward: We consider the next generation of cognitive linguistics research.

Looking Outward: We look to understudied populations and applications, particularly in regard to endangered languages and signed languages.
