This volume is intended to be a contribution to the rapidly growing
field of research into Cognitive Sociolinguistics which draws on
the convergence of methods and theoretical frameworks typically
associated with Cognitive Linguistics and Sociolinguistics. The
papers in this volume, written by internationally renowned scholars
in the fields of sociolinguistics (e.g. Labov) and cognitive
sociolinguistics, seek to explore and systematize the key
theoretical and epistemological bases for the emergence of this
socio-cognitive paradigm. More specifically, the papers, originally
published in "Review of Cognitive Linguistics" 10:2 (2012), focus
on terms and concepts which are foundational to the discussion of
Cognitive Sociolinguistics such as the role of cognition in the
sociolinguistic enterprise; the social recontextualization of
cognition; variability in cognitive systems; usage-based
conceptions of language; pragmatic variation and cultural models of
thought; cultural conceptualizations and lexicography as well as
cognitive processing models and perceptual dialectology. All the
papers are anchored in instrumental empirical data analysis. The
volume provides a welcome contribution to the field for anyone
interested in Cognitive Linguistics and its new developments. The
seven papers included in this book were originally presented at the
34th International LAUD Symposium on Cognitive Sociolinguistics,
which took place in March 2010 at the University of Koblenz-Landau
