"In essence, this is a very well-articulated, coherent volume which undoubtedly constitutesa very solid contribution to the field of CL. Moreover, one of its most attractive features is its pursuit of interdisciplinary connections providing a profound and illuminating overview of the whole framework of CL and its connections with neighboring disciplines and subdisciplines. [...] the present volume must be considered exemplary."Ricardo Mairal in: Intercultural Pragmatics 1/2007 "All in all, this is an impressive, ''must read'' volume that would be appealing to anyone interested in the exploration of fields as varied as theoretical linguistics, cognition, discourse studies, psychology, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, which makes the volume particularly attractive to those scholars from different persuasions who are interested in the relevant connection between CL and other theoretical frameworks. It represents a successful effort at multi-disciplinarity and offers, in a complementary fashion, a rich overview of the many threads of discussion on core issues of the current debate in Linguistics. This book is an excellent contribution in terms of the multiple explanatory ways and eclectic variety of perspectives it takes to shed light upon the panoramic state-of-the-art account of research in Cognitive Linguistics, which, to put it with the editors, is ''as strong as its foundations, as wide as its scope''. This book is a goldmine."Annalisa Baicchi in: Linguist List 18.241, 2007de Mendoza Ibanez, Francisco J.
