Title: Applied Cognitive Linguistics in Second Language Learning and Teaching
Subtitle: AILA Review, Volume 23
Edited By: Jeanette Littlemore

Series Title: AILA Review 23
Description:

This volume of the AILA Review focuses on the substantial
contribution Cognitive Linguistics can make to language teaching. After
almost three decades of empirical research into the motivated aspects of
language, Cognitive Linguistic findings are gradually being applied to
Second Language Acquisition (SLA). The volume covers the key areas of the
research in the area. Framed by an introduction to the field and a
conclusion evaluating the presented areas of research and identifying
avenues for future research, the papers in this volume focus on those areas
of Cognitive Linguistics that are most likely to be of particular relevance
to SLA. These areas are: radial categories, prototypes and ‘fuzzy
boundaries’; encyclopaedic knowledge; construal; metaphor; metonymy;
embodiment; and construction grammars. Some of the papers have a primarily
theoretical focus whereas others describe empirical studies of the
effectiveness of Cognitive Linguistics-inspired approaches to language
teaching.
