Title: Cognitive Linguistics
Subtitle: Convergence and Expansion
Edited By: StefanTh.Gries
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/hcp.32
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 32
Description:

Cognitive Linguistics is not a unified theory of language but rather a set of
flexible and mutually compatible theoretical frameworks. Whether these
frameworks can or should stabilize into a unified theory is open to debate. One
set of contributions to the volume focuses on evidence that strengthens the
basic tenets of CL concerning e.g. non-modularity, meaning, and embodiment.
A second set of chapters explores the expansion of the general CL paradigm
and the incorporation of theoretical insights from other disciplines and their
methodologies – a development that could lead to competing and mutually
exclusive theories within the CL paradigm itself. The authors are leading experts
in cognitive grammar, cognitive pragmatics, metaphor and metonymy theory,
quantitative corpus linguistics, functional linguistics, and cognitive psychology.
This volume is therefore of great interest to scholars and students wishing to
inform themselves about the current state and possible future developments of
Cognitive Linguistics.
