About the Author:

Leonard Talmy is Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and Director Emeritus of the Center for Cognitive Science at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. He is the author of Toward a Cognitive Semantics, volume 1, Concept Structuring Systems, and volume 2, Typology and Process in Concept Structuring (MIT Press).

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.

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.
