Cognitive Linguistic Studies is an interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary journal of cognitive linguistics, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience. It explores implications from and for psycholinguistic, computational, neuroscientific, cross-cultural and cross-linguistic research.

Cognitive Linguistic Studies provides a forum for high-quality linguistic research on topics which investigate the interaction between language and human cognition. It offers new insights not only into linguistic phenomena but also into a wide variety of social, psychological, and cultural phenomena. The journal welcomes authoritative, innovative cognitive scholarship from all viewpoints and practices. The contributions mainly focus on topics such as:

phenomenology-based cognitive linguistic research (such as categorization, prototype theory/semantics, lexical network theory, critical counterclaims, embodied realism, cognitive models, metaphor, metonymy, image schemas, imagery, naturalness, iconicity, and cognitive pragmatics)
gestalt-psychology based cognitive linguistic research (such as cognitive grammar, construction grammar, constructional syntax, force dynamics, the relation of grammar to cognition)
cognitive discourse analysis (such as mental space theory, blending theory, cognitive stylistics, cognitive poetics, political discourse)cognitive sociolinguistics (such as usage-based conception of language, language variation, ideology, cultural models, cultural linguistics)cognitive psycholinguistics (such as language processing, language acquisition, figurative language understanding, usage-based theory of acquisition, neural theory of language)cognitive historical linguistics (such as historical/diachronic semantics, grammaticalization theory, constructionalization, lexicalization, subjectivity, intersubjectivity and subjectification)contrastive cognitive linguistics (such as cross-cultural linguistics, cognitive linguistic typology), applied cognitive linguistics (such as the application of cognitive linguistics in language pedagogy, learning science, translation studies, lexicography, semiotics, and literary studies).
