Empirical Approaches to Language Typology (Book 20).
Christiane Dalton-Puffer is associate professor of English linguistics at the University of Vienna (Austria). In recent years she has researched and published on CLIL-classroom interaction. Her other research interests include L2 phonology, learner attitudes, bilingual education, morphology and the history of the English language. She is the author of several books and articles.
Grammar and Conceptualization documents some major developments in the theory of cognitive grammar during the last decade. By further articulating the framework and showing its application to numerous domains of linguistic structure, this book substantiates the claim that lexicon, morphology, and syntax form a gradation consisting of assemblies of symbolic structures (form-meaning pairings).
