 Abstract:
 
 This book explores the overlapping area of study that discourse linguists
 and cognitive linguists are interested in. In doing so, the volume
 contributes to bridging the gap between these two large groups of linguists
 who share an interest in discourse processing but approach the area from
 very different perspectives and frames of reference. The starting point of
 this volume is text and discourse.
 
 The book includes an overview section and a number of carefully selected
 contributions which highlight central issues in the study of text and
 discourse attempting to give them cognitive explanations. In responding to
 the current interest in the area of discourse and cognition, the volume has
 adopted a wide scope which allows its individual chapters to focus on
 textual and situational contexts as well as the context of culture and
 society at large. The volume also provides its readership with a useful
 selection of methods used in the studies which form the basis of its
 chapters. The contributions, all by established linguists with highest
 qualifications, present new findings which have important theoretical
 implications. They offer unique and fresh analyses of central discourse
 phenomena in cognitive light and revealing discussions of the avenues
 opened to us at this stage of the development of the study of discourse and
 cognition. 
 
 This accessible research volume will be essential reading for scholars and
 advanced students of linguistics and languages.
 
 Tuija Virtanen is Professor at Abo Akademi University, Finnland.
