Title: Essentials of Cognitive Grammar 
Publication Year: 2013 
Publisher: Oxford University Press
	   http://www.oup.com/us
	
Author: Ronald W. Langacker

Paperback: ISBN:  9780199937356 Pages: 280 Price: U.S. $ 24.95


Abstract:

Ronald W. Langacker created an approach to linguistics called Cognitive
Grammar, which is essentially a system of symbols that can be used to organize
and analyze how semantics and phonology interact with each other in human
language. Cognitive Grammar lays the groundwork for cognitive linguistics,
which has become a major sub-field over the past 30 years. Langacker's 2008
OUP book Cognitive Grammar is the authoritative introduction to CG. But for an
introduction it's rather long-584 pages, divided into four sections, two of
which are truly introductory and two of which offer a more detailed
methodology for researchers.

This abridged version of Cognitive Grammar makes the two introductory sections
available for course adoption at a reduced price. It will reinvigorate this
copyright by tailoring it to the course market that has become its primary
audience, and by positioning Langacker's authoritative work as an accessible,
attractive cornerstone of cognitive linguistics as the field continues to
evolve.
