Abstract



Empirical Approaches to Cognitive Linguistics:
Analyzing Real-life Data
is a collection of articles that takes a
cognitive linguistics view on analyzing language and presents innovative
contemporary Finnish research to the international audience. The volume brings
together nine chapters presenting empirical case studies that rely on various
kinds of corpus data, experimental data or combine both types of empirical evidence.
The topics vary from semantics to grammatical description, from terminological
choices to language acquisition, and analyze language from perspectives as
diverse as psycholinguistics, comparative linguistics, and translation studies.



In the present volume, a multi-methodological approach
to linguistic research is promoted. The idea is that language in all its
diversity can best be studied by using the entire spectrum of modern
quantitative and qualitative methods. The book appeals to academic readers,
students and established researchers, interested in the study of authentic
linguistic material especially from the cognitive perspective.
