by Ewa Dąbrowska (University of Northumbria).

This volume presents a synthesis of research in cognitive linguistics and the psychology of language. It highlights the tension between “linguists’ grammars”, which are influenced by considerations of economy and elegance, and “speakers’ grammars”, which are messy and less than fully general.
