About this product
- DescriptionThe papers collected in the present volume show that the terms cognitivism and cognitive, so common in present day linguistic discourse, do t refer to a single theoretical mode or approach to language. Firstly, the papers show that cognitivism is a lively research area accommodating a wide spectrum of approaches. Secondly, they address a number of issues ranging from grammaticalization, event structure, semantic representation, equivalence, image schematic representations and lexicography to poetry, metaphor, metonymy, and national mentality. Some of the contributions deal with the linguistic phemena in one language, while others take up a cross-linguistic approach.
