From Walter de Gruyter & Co con Cognitive Linguistics: Basic Readings (Cognitive Linguistics Research [CLR])

"Cognitive Linguistics: Basic Readings" is specifically designed for an introductory course in Cognitive Linguistics. It brings together twelve foundational articles by leading figures in the field, each of which introduces one of the basic concepts of Cognitive Linguistics, like conceptual metaphor, image schemas, mental spaces, construction grammar, prototypicality and radial sets. The introductory purposes of the collection are supported by an introduction to the theory and, specifically, the practice of Cognitive Linguistics and by trajectories for further reading that start out from the individual chapters. Key features include: each of the twelve articles introduces one of the basics concepts of the cognitive linguistics; contributions by reknown linguistics (George Lakoff, Ron Langacker, Len Talmy, Gilles Fauconnier, Charles Filmore) and influential younger scholars; specifically designed for an introductory course in cognitive linguistics, currently one of the most broadly appealing and dynamic frameworks for the study of natural language; and helps students and beginning researchers through the addition of a general introduction to the theory and, specifically, the practice of cognitive linguistics, and through the specification of trajectories for further reading.

Review
"[...] it should be immediately remarked that the coherence and unity of the book is skilfully preserved by the editor by means of a warming-up, user-friendly introduction to the field and a closing section with trajectories for further reading. [...]"Francisco Gonzalvez-Garcia in: Funtions of Language, 2008 "[...] this collection may be highly recommended."Thora Tenbrink in: Cognitive Linguistics 2/2008 "The collection brings order into the vast field of cognitive research and highlights the foundational assumptions held in Cognitive Linguistics, which is particularly helpful for students and researchers from other disciplines."Thomas Verjans in: ICLA-website Mai 2007 http: //www.cognitivelinguistics.org/Reviews/geeraerts "This volume with 12 basic readings from cognitive linguistics is a unique resource and reference instrument. It reflects and documents the most central tenets of CL: cognitive grammar (Langacker), grammatical construal (Talmy), radial networks (Brugman/Lakoff), prototype theory (Geeraerts), polysemy and vagueness (Tuggy), conceptual metaphor (Lakoff), image schemas and their transformations (Gibbs), conceptual metonymy and domain delimitation (Croft), mental spaces (Fauconnier/Turner), frame semantics (Fillmore), construction grammar (Goldberg), and usage based (psycho-)linguistics (Tomasello).In a nutshell: this is very judicious and persuasive selection of the really prototypical and most basic revolutionary insights of cognitive linguistics."Rene Dirven, October 2006 "The inclusion of main concepts in Cognitive Linguistics makes the present collection a valuable source for beginners as well as researchers in this domain. The editor has collected very good sources to introduce each concept and has added valuable information in his introduction to the book. By reading the book, a linguist may gain both familiarity with this fast-growing domain of linguistics and the means to delve into it further."Mohammad Rasekh Mahand in: Linguist List 18.1166
