Language and cognition: meaning across contexts
Mikołaj Deckert and Iwona Witczak-Plisiecka (eds.)
University of Lodz
Using the principles and methods of cognitive linguistics, pragmatics as well as corpus linguistics, this volume offers insights into how language structure and contextualised language use condition the meaning-making process. A total of ten contributors draw from English, Greek, German, Hungarian, Latin, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian to examine different types of linguistic evidence ranging from academic discourse, to literature, church language as well as media language. While the papers employ a choice of analytic constructs and research methodologies, they share the central objective of uncovering, systematically describing and explaining some of the patterns of language-prompted meaning construction and communication, both intralingually and in a contrastive perspective.
