Toward a Cognitive Semantics

Volume 1: Concept Structuring Systems and Volume 2: Typology and Process in Concept Structuring

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

This two-volume set defines the field of cognitive semantics. Leonard Talmy approaches the question of how language organizes conceptual material both at a general level and by analyzing a crucial set of particular conceptual domains: space and time, motion and location, causation and force interaction, and attention and viewpoint. Talmy maintains that these are among the most fundamental parameters by which language structures conception. By combining these conceptual domains into an integrated whole, Talmy shows, we advance our understanding of the overall conceptual and semantic structure of natural language. Volume two sets forth typologies according to which concepts are structured and the processes by which they are structured.

"At last we have all these classic papers in one place! This collection finally makes it possible to appreciate the full scope and originality of Talmy's pioneering work in cognitive linguistics." Ray Jackendoff, Professor of Linguistics, Brandeis University
