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).
