Abstract:

NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK!

This volume makes accessible a substantial range of recent research in 
Cognitive Grammar. From disparate sources, it brings together a dozen 
innovative papers, revised and integrated to form a coherent whole. This 
work continues the ongoing program of progressively articulating the 
theoretical framework and showing its descriptive application to varied 
grammatical phenomena.

A number of major topics are examined in depth through multiple chapters 
viewing them from different perspectives: grammatical constructions (their 
general nature, their metonymic basis, their role in grammaticization), 
nominal grounding (quantifiers, possessives, impersonal it), clausal 
grounding (its relation to nominal grounding, an epistemic account of tense, 
a systemic view of the English auxiliary), the "control cycle" (an abstract 
cognitive model with many linguistic manifestations), finite clauses (their 
internal structure and external grammar), and complex sentences 
(complementation, subordination, coordination). In each case the 
presentation builds from fundamentals and introduces the background 
needed for comprehension. At the same time, by bringing fresh approaches 
and new descriptive insights to classic problems, it represents a significant 
advance in understanding grammar and indicates future directions of theory 
and research in the Cognitive Grammar framework.

The book is of great interest to students and practitioners of cognitive 
linguistics and to scholars in related areas.
