Title: Aspects of Cognitive Ethnolinguistics
Written By: Jerzy Bartmiński
Edited By: Joerg Zinken
URL: http://www.equinoxpub.com/equinox/books/showbook.asp?bkid=280&keyword=aspects
Series Title: Advances in Cognitive Linguistics
Description:

Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

The book provides an introduction into a highly developed, coherent, and
extensively tested cognitive linguistic approach to lexical semantics, which is
not currently accessible to readers of English. This makes the book important
to researchers and students in lexical semantics, in Cognitive Linguistics and
beyond. It also strengthens the Cognitive Linguistics enterprise in general, by
showing that the main tenets of this approach are not an incidental historical
development in a particular corner of the world, but rather are arrived at by
scholars working in hugely different contexts independently of each other.
The book therefore has an appeal to all researchers in Cognitive Linguistics.
Furthermore, the book constitutes a contribution to the intellectual exchange
between international academic discourses that mostly develop
independently of each other – an exchange that has often provided major
impetus for scientific development, as illustrated by the influence of the
belated translations of works by Bakhtin, Lotman, Vygotsky, and Luria,
among others.
