Chapter 4 Image Schemas and Concept Invention
- 416 Downloads
In cognitive linguistics, image schemas are understood as conceptual building blocks that are learned in early infancy and which shape not only language but conceptualisation as a whole.

Moreover, we motivate and outline a formalisation approach to image schemas representing them as interlinked families of theories.
