La expresión del movimiento se ha estudiado tradicionalmente en el canal hablado, a partir de los patrones de lexicalización de Talmy (1991) y el pensar para hablar de Slobin (1996), aunque más recientemente se ha analizado la gestualidad co-ocurrente bajo la premisa de que la oralidad no permite captar toda la información relevante para el procesa...

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments, health agencies, public institutions and the media around the world have made use of metaphors to talk about the virus, its effects and the measures needed to reduce its spread. Dominant among these metaphors have been war metaphors (e.g. battles, front lines, combat ), which present the vir...

This chapter analyzes the domain of olfaction in Basque. Stemming from Ibarretxe-Antuñano’s (1999, 2013) previous work on smell verbs, it explores the role of other olfaction constructions in the encoding of physical and figurative meanings in data drawn from dictionaries and corpora. Results show that smell constructions encode two types of physic...

Este capítulo aborda el componente semántico de la intencionalidad, es decir, el grado de participación activa en el que el causador se involucra en el evento causal, en la codificación y la conceptualización de la causalidad en español desde el punto de vista de la tipología semántica. Tras una revisión crítica sobre el concepto de causalidad y su...

Full-text available
Pseudo-copulative change-of-state (PCOS) verbs are predicates that involve a change in the composition of an entity undergoing a particular event. Due to their complex linguistic nature, these verbs are not easy to be accounted for and consequently, they represent a real challenge to language teachers and learners. First, this paper critically exam...

Resumen Este artículo presenta dos estudios sobre el espacio y el movimiento desde la perspectiva de la Lingüística Cognitiva y su aplicación a ELE. El primero se centra en la polisemia de las preposiciones, especialmente por y para. Se muestra cómo la organización motivada de los usos preposicionales puede favorecer su adquisición. El segundo expl...
Article
Full-text available
Ideophones are described as expressive marked linguistic units with a dramaturgic depictive function. Although commonly regarded in traditional general linguistics as rare and marginal, recent research on this topic has shown that these elements are pervasive in all languages and that they might share some linguistic characteristics across language...

Is motion cognition influenced by the large-scale typological patterns proposed in Talmy's (2000) two-way distinction between verb-framed (V) and satellite-framed (S) languages Previous studies investigating this question have been limited to comparing two or three languages at a time and have come to conflicting results. We present the largest cro...

This paper examines the role of force dynamics and intentionality in the description of placement events by two groups of native speakers of typologically and genetically different languages, Danish and Spanish, and by two groups of intermediate adult learners, Danish learners of L2 Spanish and Spanish learners of L2 Danish. The results of the stud...

Full-text available
This study investigates sematic categorization of the meaning of placement verbs by Danish and Spanish native speakers and two groups of intermediate second language (L2) learners (Danish learners of L2 Spanish and Spanish learners of L2 Danish). Participants described 31 video clips picturing different types of placement events. Cluster analyses r...
Article
Full-text available
The concept of motion is present in all the world’s languages. However, the ways in which speakers of different languages codify motion do not seem to be so universal. Languages offer different types of structures to express motion, and speakers pay attention to different elements within the motion event. The goal of this paper is to examine in gre...

Los eventos de colocación (placement events) en los que una Figura cambia de posición por la acción de un agente (ej. Pone una taza en la mesa) suponen un interesante ámbito de investigación para la Lingüística Cognitiva, en especial para los estudios relacionados con cuestiones neorrelativistas. Este artículo analiza en primer lugar la codificació...

Full-text available
Talmy (1991, 2000) clasifica las lenguas en dos tipos, de marco-­‐‑verbal y marco de satélite, según dónde codifiquen el componente del Camino en la expresión verbal de un evento de movimiento. Las diferencias de codificación entre estas lenguas se reflejan en el uso en línea de los hablantes, lo que hace que su estilo retórico sea diferente aunque...
Article
Full-text available
Crosslinguistic studies of expressions of motion events have found that Talmy's binary typology of verb-framed and satellite-framed languages is reflected in language use. In particular, Manner of motion is relatively more elaborated in satellite-framed languages (e.g., in narrative, picture description, conversation, translation). The present rese...

According to Talmy's semantic typology, Romance languages are classified as verb-framed. is group of languages lexicalizes Path information in the main verb, whereas Manner information, if expressed at all, is usually codified in linguistic elements outside the main verb. Based on a detailed study on oral data from motion events in three Romance la...

This paper discusses the role that culture plays in the configuration of one of the most crucial meaning mechanisms in cognitive linguistics, namely conceptual metaphors, which are defined as mappings between two different conceptual domains. These mappings are embodied, that is, grounded in our sensorimotor, cultural, and social experience of the...
Article
Full-text available
Talmy (1991, 2000) divide tipológicamente las lenguas en dos tipos según cómo lexicalicen el movimiento. Las lenguas de marco verbal codifican el Camino (trayectoria) en el verbo principal (salir corriendo), mientras que las lenguas de marco de satélite lo hacen fuera del verbo, en un satélite (run out �correr fuera�). Investigaciones recientes señ...
Chapter
Full-text available
This paper examines how placement and removal events are lexicalised and conceptualised in Basque and Peninsular Spanish. After a brief description of the main linguistic devices employed for the coding of these types of events, the paper discusses how speakers of the two languages choose to talk about these events. Finally, the paper focuses on tw...
Article
Full-text available
This paper discusses how cognitive linguistics can contribute to lexicography from a theoretical as well as practical standpoint. Spanish dictionaries in general usually organise the meanings of a lexical entry as a list. This type of organisation not only makes it difficult for the reader to grasp the semantic nuisances of these meanings but also...

Metaphor in cognitive linguistics is understood as a mapping where properties from one domain - the source - are transferred onto another domain: the target. The conceptual associations between source and target have usually been considered universal, unidirectional, and usage-based. One of the issues generally taken for granted, yet often underexp...
Chapter
This paper studies the conceptualizations of four Basque internal organs: bihotz 'heart', gibel 'liver', urdail 'stomach' and heste 'intestine', and their use in compound words and idiomatic expressions. In the first part, it examines the main conceptualizations associated with these internal body organs. It is argued that there are at least three...

Since there is no agreement among researchers on how to conceptualizethe interpersonal trust, we analyzed the metaphoric expressions made by students about trust, identifying the conceptual metaphors, the most frequent dimensions of interpersonal trust that are the most frequent ones in these expressions, and establishing the possible relations amo...
Article
Full-text available
Many metaphor researchers, especially within the framework of Cognitive Linguistics, have argued that the conceptual link between sight and intellect is universal. However, there are many studies, mainly anthropological but also linguistic, that contradict not only the universality of these metaphors, but also the predominant role of vision in the...

Full-text available
We examine universals and crosslinguistic variation in constraints on event segmentation. Previous typological studies have focused on segmentation into syntactic (Pawley 1987) or intonational units (Givón 1991). We argue that the correlation between such units and semantic/conceptual event representations is language-specific. As an alternative, w...

This interview is the result of a series of email exchanges with Leonard Talmy from February to May, 2005 and, from January to May, 2006. The first part, published in the previous ARCL issue (3:325-347) discusses some of the most important and, at the same time, controversial aspects of Talmy's theory of lexicalisation patterns in motion event. Thi...

This interview is the result of a series of email exchanges with Leonard Talmy from February to May, 2005. It was designed to cover Talmy's research career from its beginning (the linguistic representation of conceptual structure, cf. 1972, 1985, 1991, 1996, 2000ab) to present day (sign language, cf. 2003, in press; the attentional system of langua...

Basque, a language spoken on both sides of the western Pyrenees, has rich lexical and grammatical resources for expressing space. It has five different locational cases and over thirty locational postpositions, mostly spatial nouns which can take any of the locational casesuffixes. The five locational cases of Basque are locative - n , ablative - t...

This article confronts the typology of motion lexicalization proposed by Len Talmy (1985, 1991, 2000a) with elicited narrative data from Basque. According to Talmy's typology, the characteristic expression of motion in Basque corresponds to that of verb-framed languages, where the semantic components of motion and path are conflated in the verb and...

Full-text available
Slobin (1991, 1996a,b, 1997) has argued that the typological differences between languages with either a satellite-framed or a verb-framed lexicalisation pattern (Talmy, 2000) have important discourse and rhetorical consequences for the expression of 'paths of movement' and 'manner of movement'. These differences are especially significant for the...

This paper analyses some of the conceptual and semantic properties of entering events in the construction entrar en / a `enter in / to' in Spanish. The first part focuses on the question of how entering events are conceptualised in this language. Recent studies on entering events (Kita 1999) have shown that some of the semantic primitives considere...

In Basque, there is recurrent tendency to express both the source and goal of movement for the description of translational motion even in cases where one of these elements is pleonastic. This construction called 'Complete Path' (Ibarretxe-Antuñano 2002) shows up not only in physical description of motion but also in a good number of different meta...
