Concept, Image, and Symbol: The Cognitive Basis of Grammar
Walter de Gruyter, 1990 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 395 pages
This classic research monograph develops and illustrates the theory of linguistic structure known as Cognitive Grammar, and applies it to representative phenomena in English and other languages. Cognitive grammar views language as an integral facet of cognition and claims that grammatical structure cannot be understood or revealingly described independently of semantic considerations.
