9780262700979: Toward a Cognitive Semantics: Typology and Process in Concept Structuring (Language, Speech, and Communication) (Volume 2)

In this two-volume set, 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.

One of a two-volume set defining 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 one examines the fundamental systems by which language shapes concepts.

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).

Review:

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)

Leonard Talmy is among the foremost scholars in the rapidly developing and expanding field that has come to be called 'cognitive linguistics.' This book will be a fundamental and much-cited work in that field, in linguistics generally, and beyond.

(Ronald Langacker, Department of Linguistics, University of California San Diego)

Talmy's penetrating analyses of the structure of language provide deep insights into the fundamental structure of cognition: space, time, causality, and social influence.

(Barbara Tversky, Professor of Psychology, Stanford University)

These volumes bring together the works of a man who has profoundly influenced the study of lingusitic meaning. An extremely rich collection, and essential reading for anyone interested in the relation of language and thought.

(Terry Regier, Department of Psychology, University of Chicago)

Here, at long last, in two extraordinary volumes, is some of the most original and insightful thinking ever produced on language and thought. Talmy was a pioneer in the development of cognitive linguistics and his magnificent opus is the fruit of many years of labor, revealing hidden mysteries of our conceptual systems. Fictive motion, force dynamics, event integration, and the conceptualization of space itself, are some of the themes that stand out in this remarkable contribution to human knowledge.

(Gilles Fauconnier, Professor and Chair, Department of cognitive Science, University of California San Diego)
