Empirical and Experimental Methods in Cognitive - Functional Research

"Empirical and Experimental Methods in Cognitive – Functional Research" consists of selected papers from the seventh meeting of the Conceptual Structure, Discourse, and Language Conference, held at the University of Alberta in October 2004. The papers fall into five main categories, reflecting the cognitive and functional orientation of the conference: reciprocity between lexis and syntax, semantic factors affecting form patterning, grammaticalization of basic verbs, form-meaning pairings in discourse, and experimental investigations of language-mind and language-use interactions. In addition, a plenary paper by Nick Evans on complex events, propositional overlay, and the special status of reciprocal clauses is included.
