Title: New Directions in Cognitive Linguistics
Edited By: Vyvyan Evans
Stephanie S. Pourcel
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 24

Nearly three decades since the publication of the seminal Metaphors We
Live By
, Cognitive Linguistics is now a mature theoretical and
empirical enterprise, with a voluminous associated literature. It is
arguably the most rapidly expanding 'school' in modern linguistics, and one
of the most exciting areas of research within the interdisciplinary project
known as cognitive science. As such, Cognitive Linguistics is increasingly
attracting a broad readership both within linguistics as well as from
neighbouring disciplines including other cognitive and social sciences, and
from disciplines within the humanities. This volume contains over 20 papers
by leading experts in cognitive linguistics which survey the state of the
art and new directions in cognitive linguistics. The volume is divided into
5 sections covering all the traditional areas of study in cognitive
linguistics, as well as newer areas, including applications and extensions.
Sections include: Approaches to semantics; Approaches to metaphor and
blending; Approaches to grammar; Language, embodiment and cognition;
Extensions and applications of cognitive linguistics.
