Like many linguists, cognitive linguists study language for its own sake; therefore they try to describe and explain its systematicity, its structure, the different functions it serves and its realization. In this respect, cognitive linguists in studying language attempt to investigate the patterns of conceptualization, i.e. language offers a window into cognitive function scrutinizing the nature of the structure and organization of thoughts.
