This volume presents new developments in cognitive grammar and explores its descriptive and explanatory potential with respect to a wide range of language phenomena. These include the formation and use of locationals, causative constructions, adjectival and nominal expressions of oriented space, morphological layering, tense and aspect, and extended uses of verbal predicates. There is also a section on the affinities between cognitive grammar an early linguistic theories, both ancient and modern.

Table of Contents
Topics in Cognitive Linguistics is an important publication. Cognitive grammar appears to be an alternative linguistic theory, which has achieved a certain degree of internal coherence and has a wide descriptive and explanatory potential when applied in the study of various language phenomena, across many natural languages.
This book marks a significant stage in the evolution of cognitive grammar, which in spite of its considerable achievements both theoretical and applicative remains open to modifications and is likely to expand in scope and depth.The volume has been very carefully devised and co-ordinated, and expertly edited by Brygida Rudzka-Ostyn.”
