The Bloomsbury Companion to Cognitive Linguistics is a comprehensive and accessible reference resource to research in contemporary cognitive linguistics. Written by leading figures in the field, the volume provides readers with an authoritative overview of methods and current research topics and future directions. The volume covers all the most important issues, concepts, movements and approaches in the field. It devotes space to looking specifically at the major figures and their contributions. It is a complete resource for postgraduate students and researchers working within cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics and those interested more generally in language and cognition.The key argument here is that units of language can be graded from the broadly schematic to the highly specific. Lexical items are generally quite specific and are clearly gradable in this manner (e.g. thing agt; vehicle agt; car agt; Toyota Prius).
