Cognitive models, perspectives, and the construction of situated
meaning have always been core concepts in Cognitive Linguistics. The
papers in this volume present applications of those concepts to the
study of discourse phenomena like the use and interpretation of
metaphors, modal expressions, focus particles, tag questions, indirect
speech acts, and iconographic textual references. The volume also
indudes two studies focusing on cognitive processes involved in
discourse production.
