Book Information

   

Title: Cognitive Linguistics in Action
Subtitle: From Theory to Application and Back
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110205817-1
Series Title: Applications of Cognitive Linguistics [ACL] 14
Description:

In view of the considerable number of recent publications devoted to
various applications of Cognitive Linguistics, the book focuses on fields
that have not been extensively dealt with within the CL framework. The book
gathers presentations that deal with fields of application as defined in
the introduction to the first volume in the ACL series (Kristiansen et al
2006).

The articles in the first section ("From loop to cycle") are defining
papers written by eminent scholars whose position within the field of CL
has been firmly established. They touch upon issues of continuing relevance
to the discipline and introduce thematic areas covered in the next four
sections of the volume.

Papers in these sections are mainly written by young scholars, whose
research illustrates various ways to implement the cycle through different
forms of contextualization, either presenting descriptive applications that
lead to theoretical amendments or widening the field of possible
applications, often interdisciplinary, e.g. to theological or metaphysical
discourse. Frequently, section papers provide illustration for the
empirical turn in Cognitive Linguistics, demonstrating the ways in which
application of theory to new data using new methodologies leads to
refinement, development or modification of the theoretical framework.

The book is of relevance to students of (applied) linguistics, interested
or specializing in language acquisition and pedagogy, intercultural
communication, literary and translation studies, as well as to academics
and students representing cognate disciplines.
