Inhalt This course is an introduction to the cognitive dimensions of language. It focuses on the ways people use linguistic structures to produce and construe meaning by providing an outline of the central concepts of cognitive linguistics (CL). CL describes linguistic patterns on the basis of general cognitive processes of knowledge formation; it thus offers an interesting model of how our use of words and syntactic patterns is derived from basic experiences and concepts. Socio-cognitive theories focus more closely on the dynamic and context-specific construction of meaning in language use.

The course sketches various areas of CL, such as language acquisition, cognitive semantics and pragmatics, and linguistic relativity. It provides you with the corresponding theoretical apparatus as well as some basic methods of analysis. In a next step, you will learn to apply this knowledge to the analysis of concrete linguistic data.
Lernziele - You know the fundamental theoretical concepts of CL.
- You can apply these concepts to analyses of linguistic data.
- You define and discuss a key theoretical notion in a written assignment.
Literatur Course readings are accessible on the course platform ADAM.
