Cognitive Linguistics has become one of the most flourishing fields of contemporary linguistics. This volume adopts the methodological perspective of Corpus Linguistics, the rapidly evolving branch of linguistics based on the computerized analysis of language used in authentic settings. The chapters provide new data, methods, and insights to many classic topics of Cognitive Linguistics and pave the way for further integration of usage-based techniques of analysis within this exciting paradigm.
