The papers in this collection discuss broadly understood cognitive turns in the philosophy of language, inspired by the Chomskyan revolution in linguistics, Langacker’s and Lakoff’s Cognitive Linguistics, but also phenomenology, Relevance Theory and Classical Indian Philosophy. The individual texts investigate, from different angles, the relations between philosophy of language and linguistics, and contribute to the development of theoretical frameworks for studying language. Most of the contributions were presented at the first International Conference on Philosophy of Language and Linguistics, PhiLang2009 (University of Łódź, May 2009).

Studies collected in this volume investigate selected issues in contemporary philosophy of language and philosophy of literature. Individual authors concentrate on philosophy of fiction and discuss fictional worlds and fictional characters. They also present different approaches to translation theory, and metaphor theory (both classical and conceptual). Other chapters address the issues of figurativeness and poetic language, apply the principles of cognitive poetics to analyse different types of texts, and provide cognitive approaches to abstraction in visual and verbal art, also to the categories of similarity and difference in perception and language. The analysed authors include Wallace Stevens, Rae Armantrout, Ernest Hemingway and David Lodge.

Papers in this collection provide philosophical and linguistic analyses of reference. The topics discussed include different types of reference, problems of identity, indexicality, reference fixing and descriptions. Other issues covered in individual chapters concern events and the event-argument hypothesis, predicate reference, definite descriptions, contextualism, types of quantifications, faultless disagreement, vagueness, reference in minimalism, and the reference system for coding spatial information in Hausa. The contributions discuss the approaches proposed by Gottlob Frege, Donald Davidson, and Saul Kripke, and contribute to the debate on reference in contemporary philosophy of language and linguistics.

Cognitive Approaches to Language and Linguistic Data

Studies in honor of Barbara Lewandowska-Tomaszczyk

Wieslaw Oleksy and Piotr Stalmaszczyk

The volume presents over 30 contributions by leading European and American linguists presented to Professor Barbara Lewandowska-Tomaszczyk, an eminent Polish linguist, in recognition of her contribution to the science of language. Papers contained in the volume reflect the many ways in which cognitive linguistics has affected such areas of linguistic research as: semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, applied linguistics, and corpus and computer linguistics. A number of contributors, including R. Langacker, deal with current issues and developments in cognitive linguistics.
