Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics Research [CLR] 45
Description:

Cognitive Sociolinguistics is a novel and burgeoning field of research
which seeks to foster investigation into the socio-cognitive dimensions of
language at a usage-based level. Advances in Cognitive Sociolinguistics
brings together ten studies into the social and conceptual aspects of
language-internal variation. All ten contributions rely on a firm empirical
basis in the form of advanced corpus-based techniques, experimental methods
and survey-based research, or a combination of these. The search for
methods that may adequately unravel the complex and multivariate dimensions
intervening in the interplay between conceptual meaning and variationist
factors is thus another characteristic of the volume. In terms of its
descriptive scope, the volume covers three main areas: lexical and
lexical-semantic variation, constructional variation, and research on
lectal attitudes and acquisition. It thus illustrates how Cognitive
Sociolinguistics studies both the variation of meaning, and the meaning of
variation.
