Cognitive linguistics subsumes diverse theoretical approaches sharing a compatible outlook: namely that language reflects the interaction of social, cultural, psychological, communicative, and functional considerations that can be understood only in the context of cognitive development and processing. The editors have organized 27 papers presented at the Third International Linguistics Conference held in the summer of 1993 in Louvain, Belgium, into six somewhat overlapping groupings off theoretical issues concerning the bridges between generative and cognitive linguistics; lexical semantics and morphology (e.g. Langacker semantics for select Coeur d'Alene prefixes); metaphor (one title is "Why metaphor matters: or linguistics meets the geopolitics of law"); syntax and semantics (focusing on Samoan, Spanish, and Swedish); pragmatics (nominal vs. temporal interpretation); and Holmqvist on computational linguistics.
