Author:
This volume is both a continuation of the six already published titles in the series (2021-23) and an addition to the Concise Dictionary of Novel Medical and General Hebrew Terminology from the Middle Ages. It continues mapping the medical terminology features in medieval Hebrew medical woks in order to facilitate study of medical terms that do not appear in the existing dictionaries as well as identifying the medical terminology used by specific authors and translators in order to identify anonymous medical material. The terminology discussed in this volume has been derived from ten different sources, including translations from Ibn Sīnā’s K. al-Qānūnby Nathan ha-Meʾati, Zeraḥyah Ḥen, and two anonymous authors. Further it contains terminology from the Maʾamar ba-Haqqazah, an anonymous Hebrew translation of Abū Bakr Muḥammad ibn Zakariyyā al-Rāzī’s K. fī al-faṣd, as well as from an anonymous translation of Guy de Chauliacʼs Inventarium sive Chirurgia Magna.
With an Introduction by Leonard Talmy
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 of Formosan Languages provides a systematic and comprehensive coverage of the aboriginal languages of Taiwan and of the many ways in which they have been studied. It contains reference articles as well as grammar sketches of a number of Formosan languages, including a few extinct languages, written by leading scholars inthe field.
The handbook includes up-to-date bibliographical references and indices and is illustrated with tables, maps, and other useful figures. An invaluable reference to Formosanists, Austronesianists, and typologists, it will be of interest to linguists more broadly as well.
Brill’s Handbooks in Linguistics series publishes comprehensive reference works on the language sciences. While works on all relevant fields are welcome, particular attention is paid to new and emerging fields, fields which do not yet have comprehensive reference works, and fields which do have such reference works but these are outdated. The series is currently being revamped, with several handbooks in the pipeline. Topics of upcoming volumes include Formosan Languages, Contrastive Pragmatics, and Cognitive Semantics.

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 fourth volume in a set of four. It contains the following parts: Part X: Force and Causation Part XI: Attention Part XII: The Targeting System of Language
