Title: Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Peter Robinson
Nick C. Ellis
Description:

This cutting-edge volume describes the implications of Cognitive
Linguistics for the study of second language acquisition (SLA). Chapters in
the first two sections identify theoretical and empirical strands of
Cognitive Linguistics, presenting them as a coherent whole. Chapters in the
third section discuss the relevance of Cognitive Linguistics to SLA and
define a research agenda linking these fields with implications for
language instruction. Its comprehensive range and tutorial-style chapters
make this Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition
a valuable resource for students and researchers alike.
