An Exploration in Cognitive Grammar

An in-depth analysis of possessive constructions in English in terms of Cognitive Grammar, as developed by Ronald Langacker and others. In the earlier chapters of the book the author introduces and motivates the conceptual apparatus of the theory, and in later chapters he develops a coherent account of the full range of possessive constructions in English. The book also provides a wide-ranging critique of alternative analyses, especially those derived from the Chomskyan school.
