Croatian cognitive-linguistic research
Throughout ten chapters, Ljiljana Šarić and Marija Brala-Vukanovic bring together the key topics of contemporary cognitive linguistics, and provide a comprehensive account of cognitive-linguistic research in Croatia. The covered topics include meaning construction, categorization, metaphor, metonymy, as well as topics that have only begun to receive attention in recent years, like the visual metaphor. The book is intended for all those interested in the connection between language and thought, and the question of how meaning is created through communication.
