Langacker's Cognitive Grammar framework, and the booklet bargains comparisons to different forms of cognitive linguistics, similar to building Grammar and Conceptual Integration. The proposed research is moreover in comparison to rule-based and constraint-based ways to phonology in generative grammar.
Without resorting to underlying representations or procedural ideas, the Cognitive Linguistics framework allows an insightful method of summary phonology, providing the real benefit of restrictiveness. Cognitive Grammar presents an research of a complete morphophonological procedure when it comes to a parsimonious set of theoretical constructs that every one have cognitive motivation. No advert hoc equipment is invoked, and the research yields robust empirical predictions. one other virtue is that Cognitive Grammar can determine the that means of morphophonological alternations. for instance, it's argued that stem alternations in Russian verbs conspire to sign non-past meaning.
This publication is offered to a extensive readership and gives a welcome contribution to phonology and morphology, that have been understudied in cognitive linguistics.
