Since the first CSDL conference held in San Diego in 1994, the CSDL series
has created a spirited forum for exchange between practitioners of
cognitive and functional linguistics. The papers in this volume focus on
the motivations for linguistic patterning in human social and cognitive
experience, and on the dynamic properties of language construal, use, and
development. The papers collected here are a rich sampling of the complex
data, innovative methods and fresh research questions undertaken by
scholars in the cognitive-functional traditions. Among the main research
avenues represented in this volume are grammaticalization, child language
learning, categorization, conversational practice, and linguistic knowledge
representation.

Subject:  New Book: METAPHOR, COGNITIVE LINGUISTICS

Nogales, Patti D.; METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING; ISBN: 1-57586-158-5 (paper),
1-57586-159-3 (cloth);  242pp.  CSLI Publications 1999:

When a woman says "My husband Steve is a sheepdog," she's using a metaphor.
Is she talking nonsense or saying something meaningful? Does the metaphor
accomplish its intent by saying or implying something? Nogales carefully
answers these questions in detail by providing an account of metaphor in
terms of reconceptualization, which conforms to the intuition that
metaphors inflict a change in perspectigve. At the same time, she provides
an illuminating critique of accepted theories of metaphor and a list of
phenomena that any theory of metaphor or natural language processing must
address.
