Abstract:

In this book, Michel Achard and Suzanne Kemmer present thirty-five original
essays bringing together work at the crossroads of linguistics, psychology,
philosophy, cognitive science, and related fields. These contributions
apply a range of methodologies and perspectives to the problem of the
relation of language to human culture and cognition, with an emphasis on
how language is produced and understood in context. Topics considered
include human categorization, cognitive and cultural models, embodiment,
and the experiential basis of categories and conceptual structures, lexical
and constructional semantics, and the distribution and formal properties of
linguistic elements and constructions in a wide variety of languages.

Some perspectives and methodologies represented among the papers are
corpus-based methodologies, discourse analysis, language acquisition,
contrastive analysis, psycholinguistic experimentation, and language change
and grammaticalization. Some theoretical frameworks deployed in the various
analyses are Cognitive Grammar, Construction Grammar, Metaphor theory, and
Mental Space and Blending Theory.
