Cognitive Grammar claims that grammatical structure is symbolic in nature and that constructions are the primary objects of description. A construction is an assembly of symbolic structures (form-meaning pairings) linked by correspondences. While constructions have certain characteristic features, various kinds of departure from this prototype are also common. Abstract. This paper presents a usage-based, Cognitive Grammar analysis of Place as a symbolic structure in signed languages. We suggest that many signs are better viewed as constructions in which schematic or specific formal properties are extracted from usage events alongside specific or schematic by:

Methods in Cognitive Linguistics is an introduction to empirical methodology for language researchers. Intended as a handbook to exploring the empirical dimension of the theoretical questions raised by Cognitive Linguistics, the volume presents guidelines for employing methods from a variety of intersecting disciplines, laying out different ways of gathering empirical evidence. Bringing together contributions from a group of prominent researchers, within a cognitive-linguistic framework, this volume sheds light on linguistic structures and usages characteristic of the Chinese language, including noun-verb inclusion, the conceptual spatialization of actions, existential constructions, conceptual structures and coherence, Pages:

This volume contains selected papers from the 5th ICLC, Amsterdam The papers present cognitive analyses of a variety of constructions, in a variety of languages including English, German, Dutch and Polish. Besides analyses of "objective construal", it Pages: Constructions at Work is a must-have book.
The author's elegance and clarity of vision, her knowledge of research beyond linguistics proper, as well as her empathy with the reader and her honesty about the no-so-clear cases, are engaging.
The book's broad cognitive orientation makes it all the more appetizing." --Folia LinguisticaCited by: linguistics. That vision centers around the hypothesis that all linguistic knowl-edge can be modelled as learned pairings of form and function, called ‘con-structions’.
The book’s playful title refers to a puzzle concerning constructions, which sets the reader on a journey for a solution. Along the road, Goldberg. This chapter explores some of the ways in which cognitive linguists have interfaced with sociolinguistics in order to enrich and refine their analyses.
It describes cognitive linguistic research on English and Dutch where the analysis benefits from taking a broader, social perspective than is usual for cognitive linguists.
Furthermore, it discusses work on Lancashire Cited by: 2. Cognitive Linguistics argues that language is governed by general cognitive principles, rather than by a special-purpose language module. This introductory textbook surveys the field of cognitive linguistics as a distinct area of study, presenting its theoretical foundations and the arguments supporting it.
Clearly organised and accessibly written, it provides a useful 5/5(1). This volume contains selected papers from the 5th ICLC, Amsterdam The papers present cognitive analyses of a variety of constructions (phrasal verbs, prepositional phrases, transitivity, accusative versus dative objects, possessives, gerunds, passives, causatives, conditionals), in a variety of languages (English, German, Dutch, Polish, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Thai, Fijian).
"The book is welcome and long-awaited [Mental Spaces in Grammar] gives a uniquely comprehensive account of the richness of the field and the cognitive dimensions that are involved.
The authors (p. 27) describe the book as 'a tour of English conditional constructions' -- a promise that they live up to with flying colours."Cited by: Cognitive Linguistics argues that language is governed by general cognitive principles, rather than by a special-purpose language module.

Cognitive Linguistics encompasses approaches to phonology, morphology, grammar, and discourse, but the emphasis has been on morphology and grammar. Work has coalesced around the idea that form-function pairings (constructions, schemata) are the basic units of language.

Constructions in cognitive linguistics: selected papers from the International Cognitive Linguistics Conference, Amsterdam, This book investigates the nature of generalization in language and examines how language is known by adults and acquired by children.
It looks at how and why constructions are learned, the relation between their forms and functions, and how cross-linguistic and language-internal generalizations about them can be explained.
