Title: The Cognitive Linguistics Reader
Edited By: Vyvyan Evans
Benjamin K. Bergen
Joerg Zinken
Series Title: Advances in Cognitive Linguistics
Description:

Cognitive Linguistics is the most rapidly expanding school in modern
Linguistics. It aims to create a scientific approach to the study of
language, incorporating the tools of philosophy, neuroscience and computer
science. Cognitive approaches to language were initially based on
philosophical thinking about the mind, but more recent work emphasizes the
importance of convergent evidence from a broad empirical and methodological
base.

The Cognitive Linguistics Reader brings together the key writings of the
last two decades, both the classic foundational pieces and contemporary
work. The essays and articles - selected to represent the full range, scope
and diversity of the Cognitive Linguistics enterprise - are grouped by
theme into sections with each section separately introduced. The book opens
with a broad overview of Cognitive Linguistics designed for the
introductory reader and closes with detailed further reading to guide the
reader through the proliferating literature.

The Cognitive Linguistics Reader is both an ideal introduction to the full
breadth and depth of Cognitive Linguistics and a single work of reference
bringing together the most significant work in the field.
