Description

The present book is an interdisciplinary, meta-semantic study of meaning, combining linguistics, semiotics and philosophy. Its main theoretical framework is Cognitive Linguistics. The author demonstrates how the theoretical and historiographic boundaries of the cognitive model of language can be broadened and enriched by semiotic and phenomenological perspectives. The discussion reveals that, despite their distinct origins, these approaches yield parallel views on meaning. Thus informed, the theoretical apparatus of Cognitive Linguistics is considerably strengthened.
