Cognitive Exploration of Language and Linguistics is designed as a comprehensive introductory text for first and second-year university students of language and linguistics. It provides a chapter on each of the more established areas in linguistics such as lexicology, morphology, syntax, phonetics and phonology, historical linguistics, and language typology and on some of the newer areas such as cross-cultural semantics, pragmatics, text linguistics and contrastive linguistics.

In each of these areas language is explored as part of a cognitive system comprising perception, emotion, categorisation, abstraction processes, and reasoning. All these cognitive abilities may interact with language and be influenced by language. Thus the study of language in a sense becomes the study of the way we express and exchange ideas and thoughts.

This Second Revised Edition is corrected, updated and expanded.

Cognitive Exploration of Language and Linguistics is clearly presented and organized after having been tested in several courses in various countries.

Includes exercises (solutions to be found on the Internet).

This title replaces Cognitive Exploration of Language and Linguistics (1999)

“Written with an audience of linguistics neonates in mind, this introduction to contemporary linguistics offers a perceptive overview of major issues in the field which make for rewarding reading even for more advanced students.”
“Clear, simple and generally accessible, with useful exercises at the end of each chapter.”
“My own experience proves that this book is an excellent introduction to linguistics. All areas of linguistics are explained from a cognitive point of view and therefore easier to understand for students without any previous knowledge. It enables them to create bridges between linguistics and other knowledge.”
