Abstract:

The book outlines a new approach to the study of motivation in language, which
is firmly rooted in the paradigm of cognitive linguistics, but it is developed
in critical (and constructive) dialogue with classical theories in semiotics:
Ferdinand de Saussure’s structural linguistics and Charles S. Peirce’s model
of the sign. The author’s proposal hinges upon the Peircean distinction
between iconic, indexical, and symbolic signs, but the classical typology is
reinterpreted within the framework of cognitive linguistics. The approach does
not seek to "categorize" different linguistic expressions into one of the
three Peircean types, but attempts to capture the dynamicity of meanings in
terms of iconicity, indexicality, and conventionality. The book presents an
analysis of selected vocabulary and morphosyntactic structures of English.
