The contributions to this book explore recent internal developments within Cognitive Linguistics from the point of view of its interdisciplinary nature. The book makes relevant connections between CL and other approaches to language, especially, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, pragmatics, and discourse studies. The contributorsinvestigate areas of convergence between these approaches and the cognitive paradigm, and place emphasis on the nature of possible developments, if such connections are taken into account. The book addresses such issues as the relationship between the embodied nature of language, cultural models, and social action and the role of cognitive models in inferential activity and in discourse.
