Title: Cognitive Linguistics
Written By: William Croft
Alan D. Cruse
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521667704
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Cognitive Linguistics argues that language is governed by general cognitive
principles, rather than by a special-purpose language module. This
introductory textbook surveys the field of cognitive linguistics as a
distinct area of study, presenting its theoretical foundations and the
arguments supporting it. Clearly organised and accessibly written, it
provides a useful introduction to the relationship between language and
cognitive processing in the human brain. It covers the main topics likely
to be encountered in a course or seminar, and provides a synthesis of study
and research in this fast-growing field of linguistics. The authors begin
by explaining the conceptual structures and cognitive processes governing
linguistic representation and behaviour, and go on to explore cognitive
approaches to lexical semantics, as well as syntactic representation and
analysis, focusing on the closely related frameworks of cognitive grammar
and construction grammar. This much-needed introduction will be welcomed by
students in linguistics and cognitive science.
