This corpus-based proposal provides a fine-grained study of lexical blending in the English language in terms of cognitive modeling. Blending as a word-formation process has gained growing popularity in recent years either to fill certain lexical/conceptual gaps or simply to endow language with… read more
Peña-Cervel, María Sandra and Carla Ovejas-Ramírez 2022 Simple and complex cognitive modelling in oblique translation strategies in a corpus of English–Spanish drama film titlesTarget 34:1, pp. 98–129 | Article
This article provides a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the translation of English drama film titles into Peninsular Spanish, drawing on cognitive modelling and following preliminary findings in Peña-Cervel (2016). Our study is consistent with the epistemological and ontological… read more
Peña-Cervel, María Sandra 2017 Chapter 6. Revisiting the English resultative family of constructions: A unifying accountConstructing Families of Constructions: Analytical perspectives and theoretical challenges, Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez, Francisco José, Alba Luzondo Oyón and Paula Pérez-Sobrino (eds.), pp. 175–204 | Chapter
The resultative construction has spurred much debate over the last five decades. This proposal, which is embedded within the Cognitive Construction Grammar paradigm, provides a critical discussion on two fine-grained classifications of resultatives, Goldberg and Jackendoff’s (2004) and Luzondo’s… read more
Peña-Cervel, María Sandra and Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez 2017 Chapter 2. Construing and constructing hyperboleStudies in Figurative Thought and Language, Athanasiadou, Angeliki (ed.), pp. 42–73 | Chapter
Hyperbole has received little attention in Cognitive Linguistics, while studies within psychology and pragmatics leave aside its representational aspects. To fill this gap, this chapter looks into linguistic evidence of the cognitive operations that underlie its communicative… read more
On the basis of corpus data and in consonance with cognitively-oriented constructionist approaches to language, mainly the work by Goldberg (1995, 2006) and the developments in Ruiz de Mendoza and Mairal (2008, 2011), we offer a fine-grained analysis of some specific instantiations of the… read more

Lachlan Mackenzie and Elsa M. González Álvarez (eds.), pp. 251–280 | Article
On the basis of Cognitive Model Theory, this chapter develops a number of explanatory tools – in the domains of conceptual prominence and of constraints on conceptual mappings – that prove useful in dealing systematically with similarities and differences among related grammatical phenomena, both… read more
Peña-Cervel, María Sandra 2004 The image-schematic basis of the EVENT STRUCTURE metaphorAnnual Review of Cognitive Linguistics: Volume 2, Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez, Francisco José (ed.), pp. 127–158 | Article
Within the framework of Cognitive Linguistics, the study of metaphor has received great attention mainly because of its conceptual character. This conception is at odds with traditional accounts, in which metaphor was merely a linguistic phenomenon endowed with a decorative function. One of the… read more
