Title: Methods in Cognitive Linguistics
Edited By: Monica Gonzalez-Marquez
Irene Mittelberg
Seana Coulson
Michael J. Spivey
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 18
Description:

Methods in Cognitive Linguistics is an introduction to empirical
methodology for language researchers. Intended as a handbook to exploring
the empirical dimension of the theoretical questions raised by Cognitive
Linguistics, the volume presents guidelines for employing methods from a
variety of intersecting disciplines, laying out different ways of gathering
empirical evidence. The book is divided into five sections. Methods and
Motivations provides the reader with the preliminary background in
scientific methodology and statistics. The sections on Corpus and Discourse
Analysis, and Sign Language and Gesture describe different ways of
investigating usage data. Behavioral Research describes methods for
exploring mental representation, simulation semantics, child language
development, and the relationships between space and language, and eye
movements and cognition. Lastly, Neural Approaches introduces the reader to
ERP research and to the computational modeling of language.
