Title: Cognitive Linguistics
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: Vyvyan Evans
Melanie Green
Description:

A general introduction to the area of theoretical linguistics known as
cognitive linguistics, this textbook provides up-to-date coverage of all
areas of the field, including recent developments within cognitive
semantics (such as Primary Metaphor Theory, Conceptual Blending Theory, and
principled polysemy), and cognitive approaches to grammar (such as Radical
Construction Grammar and Embodied Construction Grammar). The authors offer
clear, critical evaluation of competing formal approaches within
theoretical linguistics. For example, cognitive linguistics is compared to
Generative Grammar and Relevance Theory. In the selection of material and
in the presentations the authors have aimed for a balanced perspective.

While all topics are presented in terms accessible to both undergraduate
and graduate students of linguistics, cognitive linguistics,
psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and modern languages, this work is
sufficiently comprehensive and detailed to serve as a reference work for
scholars who wish to gain a better understanding of cognitive linguistics.

Note: Outside the US and Canada - this book is available through Edinburgh University Press.
