  1. 1. Implementing Cognitive Semantics

    Författare :Kenneth Holmqvist; Humanistlaboratoriet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES;

    Sammanfattning : This book is about how concepts are structured and processed. It is based on the findings in cognitive linguistics over the last decade, where thorough studies have been made about how concepts function. Concepts appear as image schemata, a spatial form of representation with very powerful properties. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Interpretive Functions of Adjectives in English : A Cognitive Approach

    Författare :Helena Frännhag; Carita Paradis; Kristin Davidse; Engelska; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; adjective; meaning; meaning creation; interpretation; formal interpretive function; semantic interpretive function; kind identification; element identification; identity provision; stipulation; specification; Languages and linguistics; Språkvetenskap; Lingvistik; Linguistics; Engelsk språkvetenskap; English; specification; noun; cognitive semantics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents a theoretical discussion of meaning creation in general, and interpretive functions of English adjectives in particular. The discussion rests on a dynamic view of meaning and interpretation, according to which there are no fixed linguistics meanings – not even for single lexemes. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Physical Foundation of the Patterning of Physical Action Verbs : A Study of Chinese Verbs

    Författare :Hong Gao; Allmän språkvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Languages and literatures of South and South-East Asia; verbal semantics; trajector; semantic representation; pyscholingistics; polysemy; physical reality; physical foundation; physical action verbs; observability; motion; lexicalization patterning; landmark; intentionality; innateness; physical contact; force-dynamics; combinability; conflation; cognitive semantics; active zone; affectability; Chinese; Kinesiska och språk och litteratur från Syd- och Sydostasien; Linguistics; Lingvistik; Grammar; semantics; semiotics; syntax; Grammatik; semantik; semiotik;

    Sammanfattning : This work is a study of verbal semantics with a focus on the discussion and illustration of the role of body parts and the semantic incorporation into verbal roots of the actions that involve various body parts. Following a general discussion of the basic issues of language construction and human body actions with the image schemas of force-dynamics presented in line with the framework of cognitive semantics, it is argued that the event structures of physical action verbs are not arbitrarily constructed but rather the constructions are built through systematic cognitive processes in relation to both human physical reality and concrete reality in the world.

  4. 4. Picture Viewing and Picture Description: Two Windows on the Mind

    Författare :Jana Holsanova; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; discourse hierarchy; picture description; vision; picture viewing; information flow; discourse segmentation; discourse analysis; coherence; semantics; spatial and temporal relations; cognitive science; linguistics; cognitive linguistics; psycholinguistics; speech; cognition; multimodal communication; mental processes; eye movement protocol; focus of attention; spoken language protocol; information processing; scene perception; areas of interest;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, I connect two disciplines, linguistics and vision research, and combine two methods, spoken language protocols and eye movement protocols, in order to cast light on the underlying cognitive processes. In a series of studies, I investigate the processual aspects of picture viewing and picture description. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Transitivity in discourse : A comparison of Greek, Polish and Swedish

    Författare :Ann Lindvall; Allmän språkvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; agentivity; affectedness; aspect; boundedness; cognitive semantics; definiteness; discourse semantics; dynamism; functionalism; givenness; Greek; language typology; lexical semantics; modality; Modern Greek; Polish; transitivity; Swedish; translation; Linguistics; Lingvistik;

    Sammanfattning : This work assumes that various linguistic forms in different languages are related to common cognitive functions and semantic properties. A cognitive function - presumably universal - is information transmission. LÄS MER
