Handbook of Cognitive Semantics (4 Vols.)

Fuyin Thomas Li

Since the late 20th century, cognitive linguistics has developed into one of the most dynamic approaches in theoretical linguistics. Several handbooks have been published on the subject, but until now no handbook has been dedicated to cognitive semantics. Although cognitive semantics forms an inseparable part of cognitive linguistics, it has its own distinctive framework and features. In this comprehensive 4-volume handbook, leading researchers on cognitive semantics from around the world take the relationship between meaning and mind as the central concern. There are dedicated sections for basic concepts, theoretical models, methodology, model and schemas, space and event typology, causation, and attention.

The handbook consists of four volumes:

Volume 1
Part I: Conceptual Semantics
Part II: Basic Issues

Volume 2
Part III: Essential Concepts
Part IV: Semantic Categories
Part V: Methodology
Part VI: Models and Schemas

Volume 3
Part VII: Space and Time
Part VIII: Event Typology
Part IX: Meaning Construction

Volume 4
Part X: Force and Causation
Part XI: Attention
Part XII: The Targeting System of Language
