About the Authors
  • The best survey of cognitive linguistics available, this Handbook provides a thorough explanation of its rich methodology, key results, and interdisciplinary context. With in-depth coverage of the research questions, basic concepts, and various theoretical approaches, the Handbook addresses newly emerging subfields and shows their contribution to the discipline. The Handbook introduces fields of study that have become central to cognitive linguistics, such as conceptual mappings and construction grammar. It explains all the main areas of linguistic analysis traditionally expected in a full linguistics framework, and includes fields of study such as language acquisition, sociolinguistics, diachronic studies, and corpus linguistics. Setting linguistic facts within the context of many other disciplines, the Handbook will be welcomed by researchers and students in a broad range of disciplines, including linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, gesture studies, computational linguistics, and multimodal studies.

    • Shows that cognitive linguistics is a paradigm which can naturally compete with generative linguistics
    • Demonstrates that work done within cognitive linguistics can offer a broader view of language than work done within other frameworks
    • Places cognitive linguistics in the context of broad theories of cognitive science, experimental neuroscience, and language pedagogy, showing readers the rich connections and interdisciplinary temperament of the field

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is the definitive introduction to cognitive linguistics that the mature field deserves, written by the leading practitioners in cognitive approaches to grammar, semantics, conceptual structure, phonology, and everything in-between (and all around). I can't imagine a better introduction for students of language.' Benjamin K. Bergen, University of California, San Diego
