Language and Cognition is a venue for the publication of high-quality empirical research focusing on the interface between language and cognition. It is open to research from the full range of subject disciplines, theoretical backgrounds, and analytical frameworks that populate linguistics and the cognitive sciences. We aim to cover a wide range of interdisciplinary research focused on theoretical issues surrounding the language system, including psycholinguistics more broadly.

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.

They described this . . . → Read More: 25 years of English Language and Linguistics...

  • 31 May 2021, Dan Iredale
  • 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...
