Articles

Zlatev, Jordan, Marta Sibierska, Przemysław Żywiczyński, Joost van de Weijer and Monika Boruta-Żywiczyńska 2024 Chapter 5. Can pantomime narrate? A cognitive semiotic approachPerspectives on Pantomime, Żywiczyński, Przemysław, Johan Blomberg and Monika Boruta-Żywiczyńska (eds.), pp. 115–138 | Chapter
Adopting the conceptual-empirical loop of cognitive semiotics, we define narrative as a three-part structure consisting of Narration, Story and Event-sequence and primary narrativity as the process of interpreting a narrative from the former to the latter two. We distinguish between simple… read more
Zlatev, Jordan and Kalina Moskaluk 2022 Translation validity in metaphor theories: CMT, DMT and the Motivation & Sedimentation ModelFigurativity and Human Ecology, Bagasheva, Alexandra, Bozhil Hristov and Nelly Tincheva (eds.), pp. 123–148 | Chapter
Evaluating competing metaphor theories against each other implies the need for theory-independent criteria of comparison. We propose translation validity, the closeness in which theoretical constructs and operationalizations match one another, to be such a criterion. Applying this to Conceptual… read more
Zlatev, Jordan, Göran Jacobsson and Liina Paju 2021 Desiderata for metaphor theory, the Motivation & Sedimentation Model and motion-emotion metaphoremesFigurative Language – Intersubjectivity and Usage, Soares da Silva, Augusto (ed.), pp. 41–74 | Chapter
Metaphor research has increasingly diversified, leading to extensive disagreements. A set of desiderata for any contemporary theory of metaphor are (i) to account for both communication and cognition, (ii) to explain both universal and culture-specific aspects, (iii) to achieve a balance between… read more
Devylder, Simon and Jordan Zlatev 2020 Cutting and breaking metaphors of the self and the Motivation & Sedimentation ModelFigurative Meaning Construction in Thought and Language, Baicchi, Annalisa (ed.), pp. 253–282 | Chapter
Why are expressions of irreversible separation (e.g. I feel torn apart) used to speak about the self? Are they to be treated as metaphorical? We address these questions by using concepts and methods from cognitive semiotics, and especially the conceptual-empirical loop. We develop identification… read more
Zlatev, Jordan and Johan Blomberg 2019 Norms of language: What kinds and where from? Insights from phenomenologyNormativity in Language and Linguistics, Mäkilähde, Aleksi, Ville Leppänen and Esa Itkonen (eds.), pp. 69–102 | Chapter
After decades dominated by a focus on the “individual speaker” and the “mind/brain” in both generative and cognitive linguistics, recent years have reinstated an older view on language as primarily social, i.e. as taking place between people more than within them. Within such a social conception of… read more
Zlatev, Jordan and Georgios Stampoulidis 2018 R. W. Gibbs, Jr. (Ed.). (2016). Mixing Metaphor Metaphor and the Social World 8:2, pp. 326–333 | Review
Pleyer, Michael, Stefan Hartmann, James Winters and Jordan Zlatev 2017 Interaction and iconicity in the evolution of language: Introduction to the special issueInteraction and Iconicity in the Evolution of Language, Hartmann, Stefan, Michael Pleyer, James Winters and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 303–313 | Introduction
Zlatev, Jordan, Sławomir Wacewicz, Przemysław Żywiczyński and Joost van de Weijer 2017 Multimodal-first or pantomime-first? Communicating events through pantomime with and without vocalizationInteraction and Iconicity in the Evolution of Language, Hartmann, Stefan, Michael Pleyer, James Winters and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 465–488 | Article
A persistent controversy in language evolution research has been whether language emerged in the gestural-visual or in the vocal-auditory modality. A “dialectic” solution to this age-old debate has now been gaining ground: language was fully multimodal from the start and remains so to this day. In… read more
Zlatev, Jordan 2012 Prologue: Bodily motion, emotion and mind scienceMoving Ourselves, Moving Others: Motion and emotion in intersubjectivity, consciousness and language, Foolen, Ad, Ulrike M. Lüdtke, Timothy P. Racine and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 1–26 | Article
Zlatev, Jordan, Johan Blomberg and Ulf Magnusson 2012 Metaphor and subjective experience: A study of motion-emotion metaphors in English, Swedish, Bulgarian, and ThaiMoving Ourselves, Moving Others: Motion and emotion in intersubjectivity, consciousness and language, Foolen, Ad, Ulrike M. Lüdtke, Timothy P. Racine and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 423–450 | Article
The concepts (or “domains”) of motion and emotion are closely related in both language and experience. This is shown by the presence of many metaphorical expressions (e.g. ‘my heart dropped’) across languages denoting affective processes on the basis of expressions originally denoting physical… read more
Zlatev, Jordan 2008 10. The co-evolution of intersubjectivity and bodily mimesisThe Shared Mind: Perspectives on intersubjectivity, Zlatev, Jordan, Timothy P. Racine, Chris Sinha and Esa Itkonen (eds.), pp. 215–244 | Article
This chapter presents an evolutionary and developmental model, according to which intersubjectivity is intimately tied to bodily mimesis – the use of the body for communicative and representational purposes – to an extent that intersubjectivity can be said to co-evolve with it. I review some… read more
Zlatev, Jordan, Timothy P. Racine, Chris Sinha and Esa Itkonen 2008 1. Intersubjectivity: What makes us human?The Shared Mind: Perspectives on intersubjectivity, Zlatev, Jordan, Timothy P. Racine, Chris Sinha and Esa Itkonen (eds.), pp. 1–14 | Article
The article presents the outlines of an integrative theory of meaning based on the concept of value, understood both as a biological and as a socio-cultural category, synthesizing ideas from evolutionary and developmental psychology, semiotics and cybernetics. The proposal distinguishes between… read more
