enlanguaging mind


notes in light of The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics, 2007

The romance with cognitive linguistics is suspended for awhile (until someone inspires me otherwise), but I had a great time, and I surely will return.

a little romance



As time allows, I'm roaming through the new Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics (you really wanted to know), taking from it what suits my project (generally: the foundational treatments at the beginning of the Handbook and the cross-domainal discussions in its last part).

It's hardly obvious how cognitive linguistics may relate to some formal pragmatic sense of a "good of humanity," but I'll address this later.
