Title: Cognitive Grammar
Written By: John R. Taylor
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0198700334.html
Series Title: Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Cognitive Grammar offers a radical alternative to mainstream linguistic theories. This book introduces the theory in clear, non-technical language, relates it to current debates about the nature of linguistic knowledge, and applies it to in-depth analyses of a range of topics in semantics, syntax, morphology, and phonology. Study questions and suggestions for further reading accompany each of the main chapters.
