Radden, Günter/Dirven, René (2007). Cognitive English Grammar. Amsterdam: Benjamins.
This course will (mainly) be taught online. In order to participate you will need an internet connection with a working microphone AND camera. There will be an input session each week, so you will need to be available on the day and at the time you have enrolled for.
This course seeks to give students a deeper insight into the nature of grammar as a human achievement and into the cognitive principles that motivate its structure. The traditional approach to grammar focuses on forms, structures and rules. By contrast, the cognitive approach to grammar focuses on language as a tool of conceptualisation and hence the meaningfulness of language.
