Contents:
Introduction / Hans-J�org Schmid and Susanne Handl -- Part I. Lexical patterns: A computational model of the ambiguity-vagueness spectrum / George Dunbar -- Questions of life and death: Denotational boundary disputes / Olaf J�akel -- Breakthroughs and disasters: The politics and ethics of metaphor use in the media / Brigitte Nerlich -- Synonymy, lexical fields, and grammatical constructions: A study in usage-based cognitive semantics / Dylan Glynn -- Collocation, anchoring, and the mental lexicon: an ontogenetic perspective / Susanne Handl and Eva-Maria Graf -- Part II. Grammatical patterns: The mean lean grammar machine meets the human mind: Empirical investigations of the mental status of linguistic rules / Ewa Dabrowska -- Motivating grammatical and conceptual gender agreement in German / Klaus-Michael K�opcke, Klaus-Uwe Panther and David A. Zubin -- Computed or entrenched? The French imparfait de politesse / Ulrich Detges -- Valency constructions and clause constructions or how, if at all, valency grammarians might sneeze the foam off the cappuccino / Thomas Herbst -- What exactly is the question-assertion distinction based on? An exploration in experimental speech act theory / Patric Bach and Dietmar Zaefferer.
Summary: There is an increasing awareness in linguistics that linguistic patterns can be explained with recourse to general cognitive processes. The contributions collected in this volume pursue such a usage-based cognitive linguistic approach by presenting empirical investigations of lexical and grammatical patterns and probing into their implications for the relations between language structure, use and cognition.
