Cultural Linguistics

Description

Cultural Linguistics advances multidisciplinary inquiry into the relationship between language and cultural conceptualisations. It champions research that advances our understanding of how features of human languages encode culturally constructed conceptualisations of experience. Edited by world-renowned linguist Professor Farzad Sharifian, Cultural Linguistics publishes monographs and edited volumes from diverse but complementary disciplines as wide-ranging as cross-cultural pragmatics, anthropological linguistics and cognitive psychology to present new perspectives on the intersection between culture, cognition and language. Featured themes include: • Cultural conceptualizations and the structure of language • Language and cultural categorization • Language, culture, and embodiment • Language and cultural conceptualizations of emotions • Cultural conceptualizations and pragmatic meaning • Cultural conceptualizations and (im)polite language use • Applied Cultural Linguistics (e.g., Cultural Linguistics and English Language Teaching, Cultural Linguistics and World Englishes, Cultural Linguistics and Intercultural Communication, Cultural Linguistics and Political Discourse Analysis) The series editor welcomes proposals that fit the description above.
