Abstract:

This book illustrates the ways that cognitive linguistics, a relatively new 
paradigm in language studies, can illuminate and facilitate language research 
and teaching. The first part of the book introduces the basics of cognitive 
linguistic theory in a way that is geared toward second language teachers and 
researchers. The second part of the book provides experimental evidence of the 
usefulness of applying cognitive linguistics to the teaching of English. Included 
is a thorough review of the existing literature on cognitive linguistic applications 
to teaching and cognitive linguistic-based experiments. Three chapters report 
original experiments which focus on teaching modals, prepositions and 
syntactic constructions, elements of English that learners tend to find 
challenging. A chapter on "future directions" reports on an innovative analysis of 
English conditionals. Pedagogical aids such as diagrams and sample exercises 
round out this pioneering and innovative text.
