Nearly three decades since the publication of the seminal Metaphors We Live By, Cognitive Linguistics is now a mature theoretical and empirical enterprise, with a voluminous associated literature. It is arguably the most rapidly expanding ‘school’ in modern linguistics, and one of the most exciting areas of research within the interdisciplinary project known as cognitive science. As such, Cognitive Linguistics is increasingly attracting a broad readership both within linguistics as well as from neighbouring disciplines including other cognitive and social sciences, and from disciplines within the humanities. This volume contains over 20 papers by leading experts in cognitive linguistics which survey the state of the art and new directions in cognitive linguistics. The volume is divided into 5 sections covering all the traditional areas of study in cognitive linguistics, as well as newer areas, including applications and extensions. Sections include: Approaches to semantics; Approaches to metaphor and blending; Approaches to grammar; Language, embodiment and cognition; Extensions and applications of cognitive linguistics.

“New Directions in Cognitive Linguistics presents us with a fascinating snapshot of various currents in the cognitive movement. [...] As a balanced collection of insightfully written papers on a number of topical issues, the volume is bound to stimulate further inquiry and research.”
“All in all, the collection gives a coherent and comprehensive representation of both state of the art and innovative conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches in cognitive linguistic research.”
“[...] this volume is a valuable contribution for Cognitive Linguistics as a discipline: First, its collection of articles represents a great body of knowledge in various topics. Second, it implicitly makes clear what the dangers of current developments are: the divergence of theoretical and empirical approaches, a lack of debate about existing theories, and extensions beyond the interest for linguistic research. But thirdly, and most importantly, the volume hints at ways in which these challenges can be met.”
