This volume brings together papers from the Eleventh Conceptual Structure, Discourse, and Language Conference, held in Vancouver in May 2012. Cognitive studies of linguistics have begun to examine the interaction between language and other modes of communication, namely gesture, music, and visual images. Focusing on the interaction between creativity, cognition, and language, the contributors explore topics as diverse as metaphor theory, construction grammar, blending theory, and cognitive grammar. The interrelation of embodied cognition and language will be of interest not only to linguists, but to writers, artists, and academics from a range of fields.
