This contribution focuses on the close link between perception and language. The analysis will extend beyond morphological evidence to include the role of submorphological relics. It will also raise the question of whether sensorimotor and submorphemic knowledge might have an impact on political discussion. In short, this paper seeks to tackle the...

This contribution focuses on the close link between perception and language. The interaction between perceptual and conceptual parameters will be illustrated in detail and from different perspectives via specific examples. Three questions will be tackled: first how aware are we that words are never "innocent" second, how transparent are words, and...
Article
Full-text available
Assuming linguistic representation has only been studied by linguists using grammaticality judgments, Branigan and Pickering present structural priming as a novel alternative. We show that their assumptions are incorrect for cognitive-functional linguistics, exposing converging perspectives on form/meaning pairings between generativists and cogniti...

Im Mittelpunkt der Untersuchung steht die Frage, inwieweit Verknappung bewusst als funktionales Instrument und zeitgenössisches Stilmittel in Sprache, Kultur und neuen Medien eingesetzt wird. Der Sammelband untersucht das Phänomen der Verknappung zunächst als Strategie in der digitalen Welt, der Werbung und der graphischen Kommunikation und anschli...

The COVID-19 outbreak was accompanied by a massive "infodemic", making it difficult to identify reliable sources. While poorly edited fake news fundamentally differs from trustworthy information in the area of narrative structure (van der Linden, 2017), the situation is much different with fake news of higher editorial standards. Our goal is to dev...
Article
Verbos leves show the interaction of language, speech and cognition particularly clearly. They are not only an extremely frequent phenomenon of orality, but can also be traced back to one and the same cognitive anchor point, namely the HAND. The intra-Romanesque comparison is particularly revealing here: although verbos leves follow the same develo...

Sensorimotor-based concepts (SBCs), a variation of political metaphors, are frequently used in political discourse. The particular challenge with these kinds of metaphors is that for a long time they have kept a low profile. SBCs are basic level concepts and can be used, not only frequently, but also iteratively to convey a subliminal story line. T...

Abstrakt Wahlkampf ist nicht nur Wortkampf, sondern vor allem ein Kampf um die Gunst der Wähler. Die Rezeption einer Rede bzw. ihr Erfolg hängt stark davon abhängt, wie sehr sich der einzelne Wähler mit dem Gesagten identifizieren kann. Der Beitrag untersucht daher, welche Rolle der Gebrauch von sensomotrischen Konzepten im aktuellen französischen...

The idea of the Visual Grammar is based, on the one hand, on a fundamental questioning of the traditional view on grammar division and description, and on the other hand, on the conviction that memorization of grammatical structures is no longer up-to-date in today’s language teaching.
Article
Full-text available
This contribution focuses on the close link between sensorimotor actions and language. The interaction between perceptual and conceptual parameters will be illustrated in detail and from different perspectives via specific examples. Furthermore, the analysis will extend beyond morphological evidence to include the role of sub morphological relicts...

Chapter
Metaphors are an important tool of political discourse as they help to convey a great deal of information in a concise manner and to collapse complicated issues into more simplified packets of information, by defining patterns of perception to which people can respond (Edelmann 1971: 67). In other words, metaphors are so suitable for political disc...

The global obesity epidemic continues to escalate despite decades of international effort. To date, most work in this area has focused on technical requirements and affordances, with little attention to the conceptual structures underlying the framing of health messages received by the general public. We propose that efforts to contain the obesity...

El libro pretende ser un instrumento ú...
Book
Full-text available
Creole languages lexified by Spanish and Portuguese have played a relatively small role in theories of creole genesis, and as a result the histories of vernaculars such as Palenquero, Papiamentu, Cape Verdean Creole, and the Gulf of Guinea creoles (e.g., São Tomense or Annobonese) have typically been considered distinct evolutionary events. In cont...

The talk focuses on the mental representations of grammar. Given the fact that the dynamic processes inherent to grammatical reanalysis cannot be made visible in FMRI, at least at this technical stage, we have chosen to illustrate the transformation processes which take place on the syntactic level, by starting out with a static representation of t...

L’objectif principal de cette approche sémantico-cognitive est de montrer l’influence prédominante du concept de source (approche diachronique) dans les emplois synchroniques d’un verbe. Souvent considéré comme élément pivot dans le processus de composition sémantique, imposant certaines contraintes au reste de l’énoncé, le verbe présente un intérê...

This paper is an attempt to look into patterns of use and variation concerning the conceptualization of ‘fear.’ Analyzing the semantic �eld and syntactic structure of fear expressions in French, the following questions will be tackled: Which of the parameters associated with fear play a role in the linguistic encoding? Are there conceptual di�erenc...
Conference Paper
What does it take to describe an emotion? And how can an experience, such as shock, be described? Shock is not really classified as an emotion, due to the fact that it does not display exclusive features, but rather shares its dominant parameters with more prominent emotions, such as e.g. fear. Therefore, it is mostly considered either as something...

Sprache entsteht durch Kommunikationswillen und Gedankenstrukturierungsversuche und ist daher auch immer das Ergebnis von Problemlösungsstrategien (Langacker 2008: 540). Der vorliegende kognitive Ansatz versucht, Motivationen hinter Sprachwandel im Verbbereich aufzudecken. Dabei wird der Schwerpunkt auf dem Französischen und Spanischen liegen, aber...

Posture verbs which allow for an extended locative use, such as sit, stand and lie, make reference to specific parts of the localized object, to the orientation of prominent object axes and to positional information, which are perceived by means of cognitive modules such as gestalt recognition and spatial perception. These properties render posture...

La grammaire ainsi que le lexique d'une langue peuvent être considérés comme des oeuvres d'art cognitives formées à partir de plusieurs stratégies communicatives. Cette étude aura pour objet d'analyser différents exemples issus de plusieurs langues romanes et non-romanes, afin de démontrer que l'emploi de somatismes est très répandu et très pro-duc...

Ensayo de un crimen es una obra en la que nada es lo que parece. Buñuel nos seduce con su universo misterioso y desconcertante, y con su mirada íntima en la vida de sus protagonistas, que se pierden en un laberinto surrealista de planes truncados. El siguiente análisis ilustrará por medio de la estructura y la narrativa las constelaciones principal...

Douter, c’est examiner, c’est démonter et remonter les idées comme des rouages, sans prévention et sans précipitation …Emile-Auguste Chartier (Alain) Abstract. The general aim of the paper is to capture the different extensional readings of the stative (e.g. French La route monte ‘The way climbs’) and dynamic uses (e.g. French Pierre monte le table...

In dieser Arbeit wird sich auf eine Spurensuche nach der Entstehung einer neuen Kategorie, nämlich Leerverben als paralleler Kopulastrang, begeben. Der Übergang von einem Inhaltselement (Vollverb) zu einem Funktionselement (Leerverb) wird häufig als ein sprachliches «Paradoxon» betrachtet. Am Beispiel von Leerverben wird verdeutlicht, dass der Verl...
