Linguistic Bibliography
Any one interested in theoretical linguistics, semantics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, language and cognition and cognitive linguistics and cognitive semantics.
Fuyin (Thomas) Li (Ph.D. 2003, the Chinese University of Hong Kong) is Professor of Linguistics at Beihang University, Beijing. His primary research interests are in event representations, semantic typology, and Talmyan schematic systems. He is the founder and organizer of China International Forum on Cognitive Linguistics, as well as the editor for the Distinguished Lectures in Cognitive Linguistics book series.

Review Editor
Nian Liu (Ph.D. 2012, University of Hawaii at Manoa) is Associate Professor in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Linguistics at the University of Oklahoma, U.S.A., where she teaches Cognitive Linguistics and Chinese Linguistics. Her research interests cover diverse topics including linguistic relativity, embodiment of linguistic constructions, bilingualism and Chinese language processing. Her main research projects explore the relationship between language and cognition— how language is influenced by and influences general cognition.
Associate Editors
Jürgen Bohnemeyer (Ph.D. 1998, Tilburg University) is Associate Professor of Linguistics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Bohnemeyer specializes in semantic typology, the crosslinguistic study of semantic categorization. Bohnemeyer’s work focuses on the semantic typology of representations of space, time, and events.
Beate Hampe (Ph.D. 1999, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena) is Associate Professor of Linguistics ("Language and its Structure") at the University of Erfurt, Germany, where she teaches English Linguistics, Cognitive Linguistics and Corpus Linguistics. Her primary research interests are in Cognitive Semantics, especially metaphor theory and image-schema theory, as well as in Cognitive/Construction Grammar, especially construction networks and, more recently, also multimodality.
Martin Hilpert (Ph.D. 2007, Rice University) is Professor of English Linguistics at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. His research interests include cognitive linguistics, language change, construction grammar. He has been investigating these topics with quantitative corpus linguistic methods and experimental techniques.
Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez (Ph.D. 1991, University of Zaragoza) is Professor of Linguistics at the University of La Rioja, Spain. His research is focused on the application of cognitive modeling principles to figurative language and thought, to the understanding of the implicational, illocutionary, and discourse dimensions of language use, and to constructionist accounts of language.
Robert D. Rupert (Ph.D. 1996, University of Illinois at Chicago) is Professor of Philosophy and Fellow of the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder and Regular Visiting Professor at the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses primarily on mental representation, cognitive architecture, and situated and embodied cognition. Beginning in September, 2020, he will be co-editor-in-chief of the British Journal for the Philosophy of Science.
Hendrik De Smet (Ph.D. 2008, University of Leuven) is Associate Professor at the University of Leuven, Belgium. His research is into the mechanisms underlying language change, such as analogy, blending, pragmatic strengthening, competition – and how those mechanisms interact with one another and with the existing language system. The primary focus of his work is on the recent history of English.

Cognitive Semantics

Editor-in-Chief: Fuyin (Thomas) Li
A peer-reviewed international journal, Cognitive Semantics takes the relationship between meaning and mind as its central concern. It welcomes submission of unpublished research from all theoretical orientations in linguistics. It is also intended to be a forum for scholars in related fields – such as psychology, anthropology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, philosophy, and education – to disseminate their work studying the many and varied aspects of human cognition.
