The two-way typology proposed by Leonard Talmy has engendered a large amount of research that includes verifications, revisions, and criticisms. The present article enumerates some major criticisms and provides some justifications and rebuttals, at the same time proposes the macro-event hypothesis that language can often represent a complex situation either more analytically in a set of simpler events, or more synthetically as a single integrated complex event, termed a “macro-event.” Diachronically, a language might then progressively change its representation of a privileged relation from having solely a highly analytic one to also having a highly synthetic one. On this basis, languages may fall into two major categories: Macro-event languages and non-macro-event languages, which then might be further divided into four distinctive types, respectively: steady state macro-event languages versus conflated macro-event languages, and steady state non-macro-event languages versus deconflated non-macro-event languages.

This chapter defines cognitive semantics as an interdisciplinary approach to the study of meaning and mind. It points out some salient topic areas in cognitive semantics, and provides a glimpse of the contents in the volume, and how these chapters fill in the taxonomy described in Foreword by Talmy.

Volume Editor:
Since the late 20th century, cognitive linguistics has developed into one of the most dynamic approaches in theoretical linguistics. Several handbooks have been published on the subject, but until now no handbook has been dedicated to cognitive semantics. Although cognitive semantics forms an inseparable part of cognitive linguistics, it has its own distinctive framework and features. In this comprehensive 4-volume handbook, leading researchers on cognitive semantics from around the world take the relationship between meaning and mind as the central concern. There are dedicated sections for basic concepts, theoretical models, methodology, model and schemas, space and event typology, causation, and attention.

The handbook consists of four volumes:

Volume 1
Part I: Conceptual Semantics
Part II: Basic Issues

Volume 2
Part III: Essential Concepts
Part IV: Semantic Categories
Part V: Methodology
Part VI: Models and Schemas

Volume 3
Part VII: Space and Time
Part VIII: Event Typology
Part IX: Meaning Construction

Volume 4
Part X: Force and Causation
Part XI: Attention
Part XII: The Targeting System of Language

Volume Editor:
Cognitive semantics is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of meaning and mind. The Handbook of Cognitive Semantics is the first reference work in the field. Edited by Thomas Fuyin Li, with a detailed taxonomy of the field by Leonard Talmy, it provides an overview of the basic topics and recent developments. Since its origins, cognitive semantics has grown greatly in the range and depth of its research on conceptual structure in language. The Handbook shows that cognitive semantics has become a mature discipline that advances linguistic meaning to a central place in research on cognition. This is the second volume in a set of four. It contains the following parts: Part III: Essential Concepts Part IV: Semantic Categories Part V: Methodology Part VI: Models and Schemas

Distinguished Lectures in Cognitive Linguistics publishes the keynote lectures series given by prominent international scholars at the China International Forum on Cognitive Linguistics since 2004. Each volume contains the transcripts of 10 lectures under one theme given by an acknowledged expert on a subject, and readers have access to the audio recordings of the lectures through links in the e-book and QR-codes in the printed volume. This series provides a unique course on the broad subject of Cognitive Linguistics. Speakers include George Lakoff, Ronald Langacker, Leonard Talmy, Laura Janda, Dirk Geeraerts, Ewa Dąbrowska and many others.
