Cognitive linguistics is a cluster of overlapping approaches to the study of language as a mental phenomenon. Cognitive linguistics emerged as a school of linguistic thought in the 1970s.
In the introduction to Cognitive Linguistics: Basic Readings (2006), linguist Dirk Geeraerts makes a distinction between uncapitalized cognitive linguistics (“referring to all approaches in which natural language is studied as a mental phenomenon”) and capitalized Cognitive Linguistics (“one form of cognitive linguistics”).
Cognitive Linguistic Studies is an interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary journal of cognitive linguistics, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience. It explores implications from and for psycholinguistic, computational, neuroscientific, cross-cultural and cross-linguistic research.
Cognitive Linguistic Studies provides a forum for high-quality linguistic research on topics which investigate the interaction between language and human cognition. It offers new insights not only into linguistic phenomena but also into a wide variety of social, psychological, and cultural phenomena. The journal welcomes authoritative, innovative cognitive scholarship from all viewpoints and practices.
One of the aims of this graduate program is to train interdisciplinary researchers in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language, to further advance and transfer this knowledge to the areas of Health and Education.
