Description:

The contributions to this volume focus on what language and language use
reveals about cognitive structure and underlying cognitive categories.
Wide-ranging and thought-provoking essays from linguists and psychologists
within this volume investigate the insights conceptual categorization can
give into the organization and structure of the mind and specific mental
states. Topics and linguistic phenomena discussed include narratives and
story telling, language development, figurative language, linguistic
categorization, linguistic relativity, and the linguistic coding of mental
states such as perceptions and beliefs. With contributions at the forefront
of current debate, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in
language and the cognitive structures that support it.
