"In conclusion, this 11 chapter volume constitutes a highly valuable resource for beginners and experienced researchers in Cognitive Linguistics. Beyond offering overviews of various research subfields at the heart of the field, many of its chapters are inspirational while at the same time providing very careful reflections on the state of evidence and suitability of methods in a highly interdisciplinary field."
