I'm looking for a short (max. 30-40 pages) reading introducing
schema/frame/cognitive model theory to students who are beginners at
linguistics. I've cruised chapters of various books ('Women, Fire &
Dangerous Things', 'Cultural Models of Language & thought'), but haven't
found a straightforward introduction. Anybody have any tips?

-- Thanks!
