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.

"Langacker [...] has been one of the most productive and visible of the cognitive linguistic theorists, and one of the most influential in bringing linguistics as a discipline into line with the compelling work of other cognitive theorists in social science fields."Eve Sweetser and Patricia Hunt in: Semiotica "The most coherent and detailed body of research in cognitive linguistics."
