The chapters in this volume tackle core issues in figurative language and figurative thought, and explore areas of convergence between ICMs (metaphor and metonymy, in particular) and language (morphology, syntax, lexis, textuality, and discourse), also placing the emphasis on the nature of potential developments in future research. Cognitive Linguistics has recently developed an interdisciplinary nature as its central concern and constructed robust bridges across many fields such as pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse studies, multimodality, psycholinguistics, and poetics, to name just a few.

The topics dealt with in the chapters testify of the great tolerance of Cognitive Linguistics towards internal variety within itself by yielding cognitive unity between convergent linguistic disciplines, and towards external interaction with major linguistic sub-disciplines, thus providing the readers with an overview of the connections between cognition and a range of social, pragmatic, and discourse-oriented dimensions of language.

Abstract

The chapters in this volume tackle core issues in figurative language and figurative thought, and explore areas of convergence between ICMs (metaphor and metonymy, in particular) and language (morphology, syntax, lexis, textuality, and discourse), also placing the emphasis on the nature of potential developments in future research. Cognitive Linguistics has recently developed an interdisciplinary nature as its central concern and constructed robust bridges across many fields such as pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse studies, multimodality, psycholinguistics, and poetics, to name just a few. In a complementary fashion, the volume examines to what extent interdisciplinary issues have a bearing upon the internal paradigm of Cognitive Linguistics, thus giving shape to the major strands that have so far developed (e.g., cognitive semantics, cognitive morphology, cognitive construction grammar, cognitive translation studies, applied cognitive linguistics). The topics dealt with in the chapters testify of the great tolerance of Cognitive Linguistics towards internal variety within itself by yielding cognitive unity between convergent linguistic disciplines, and towards external interaction with major linguistic sub-disciplines, thus providing the readers with an overview of the connections between cognition and a range of social, pragmatic, and discourse-oriented dimensions of language.
