In addition to the traditional areas of cognitive linguistics (e.g., construction grammar, metaphor theory, linguistic relativity), we especially welcome research which considers theoretical linguistic questions within a broader cognitive context; for example, sentence processing studies which present time-sensitive evidence for grammatical or conceptual representations, or research looking at first or second language acquisition as it relates to other cognitive systems. We also strongly encourage submissions investigating iconicity, multimodality, signed languages, gesture, or language evolution.
Language and Cognition is the official journal of the UK Cognitive Linguistics Association. From 2021 the journal is published online only.

He has kindly accepted to answer our questions five years later, both on the current status of his blog and on the book that followed it. Can you remind us why it is that you started a blog? I did so for a number of reasons. First, . . . → Read More: “Life as a Bilingual” – a highly successful blog and now a new Cambridge book...

They wrote in their editors’ note in the first issue that they began the journal because of a perceived need to offer a forum which “covers the range that ELL is intended to cover, a ‘natural class’ of research interests which deserves to be treated in one place”. They described this . . . → Read More: 25 years of English Language and Linguistics...

- Written by Martina Wiltschko (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona) When we talk to each other, we interact in ways that go beyond telling each other about ourselves and the world around us. We let our interlocutors know what we think and how we feel; we can share our attitudes towards each other and the things we talk about. We do this by using language dedicated to interaction and which does not contribute to the content of what we say. The mood of a conversation changes dramatically when the language of content (you made it) is enriched with interactional language (oh wow), bold-face in (1-2). (1) Ann: Oh wow, you made it, eh? Beth: I know, right? (2) Charlie: Damn. I’m sick. Dorian: Oh no! Get better, okay? Without interactional language the . . . → Read More: Verbal hugs don’t lie...
