The book presents the theoretical underpinnings and major
applications of a new Cognitive Language Pedagogy based in
Cognitive Linguistics and inspired by modern
psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, psychological and
didactic research. Cognitive linguistics offers a
comprehensive approach to modernizing language teaching in
many ways by establishing a paradigm shift rarely seen in
language instruction. The book focuses on making accessible
and using those insights for the fields of language
acquisition and language learning, as well as for their
application to the practical teaching of foreign languages
and cultures (linguacultures). The book not only builds
bridges between disciplines and between theory and practice,
it also shows how the most modern language teaching
approaches (task-based teaching and learning) can be
integrated into an innovative model of a cognitive-based
language pedagogy.
