As a usage-based language theory, cognitive linguistics is predestined to have an impact on applied research in such areas as language in society, ideology, language acquisition, language pedagogy.

The present volumes are a first systematic attempt to carve out pathways from the links between language and cognition to the fields of language acquisition and language pedagogy and to deal with them in one coherent framework: applied cognitive linguistics.

Applied Cognitive Linguistics is a book dedicated to the scientific aspect of pedagogical linguistics and physical aspects of implementations of "sciences". Applied linguistics brings for a more accurate aspect of figuring out the way to solidifying world problems in order to appreciate pedagogical evidences of acquiring a language. This focuses on the rudimentary aspects of linguistics - looking for precision and assurance of a discipline being accurate in bringing forth exercises that may ameliorate Cognitive abilities.
