By illustrating the diverging research methods and procedures possible
within the cognitive-linguistic scene, this volume reveals the
contribution cognitive linguistics offers to the study of emotions.
At the same time, the papers contained in this volume confirm one of
the basic assumptions of cognitive linguistics, viz. that
conceptualization is governed by ecological, environmental,
culture-specific and universal factors. In addition to its great
empirical value, the volume is outstanding in that it represents a
wide spectrum of cognitive trends so that it testifies to the
pluralism within the cognitive-linguistic paradigm:
metaphorical-metonymical Lakoffian approach, semantic primitives
approach, semasiological-structure approach.
