Abstract:

In what ways are language, cognition and perception interrelated? Do they
influence each other? This book casts a fresh light on these questions by
putting individual speakers’ cognitive contexts, i.e. their usage-preferences
and entrenched patterns of linguistic knowledge, into the focus of
investigation.
It presents findings from original experimental research on spatial language
use which indicate that these individual-specific factors indeed play a
central role in determining whether or not differences in the current and/or
habitual linguistic behaviour of speakers of German and English are
systematically correlated with differences in non-linguistic behaviour (visual
attention allocation to and memory for spatial referent scenes).

These findings form the basis of a new, speaker-focused usage-based model of
linguistic relativity, which defines language-perception/cognition effects as
a phenomenon which primarily occurs within individual speakers rather than
between speakers or speech communities.
