Title: Cultural Conceptualisations and Language
Subtitle: Theoretical framework and applications
Written By: Farzad Sharifian
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CLSCC%201
Series Title: Cognitive Linguistic Studies in Cultural Contexts 1
Description:

This book presents a multidisciplinary theoretical model of cultural
conceptualisations and language. Viewing language as firmly grounded in
cultural cognition, the model draws on analytical tools and theoretical
advancements in several disciplines, including cognitive linguistics,
cognitive anthropology, anthropological linguistics, distributed cognition,
complexity science, and cognitive psychology. The result is a framework
that has significant implications for those disciplines as well as for applied
linguistics.

Applications of the model to intercultural communication, cross-cultural
pragmatics, English as an International Language/World Englishes, and
political discourse analysis are explored in detail.
