About the Author

Ronald W. Langacker retired after 37 years as Professor of Linguistics at the University of California, San Diego. He was originally trained in generative linguistics, and worked for a decade on the Uto-Aztecan family of Native American languages. Since 1976 he has been developing the theory of Cognitive Grammar (a radical alternative to generative theory) as part of the broader tradition of cognitive linguistics.


...must be commended for its style and language...reading it is a very enjoyable extremely valuable reference work for scholars...a 'must read'... * Tore Nesset, Linguistics *
