This text explores the implications of Eleanor Rosch's seminal work on categorization and prototype theory, extending the application of prototype theory from lexical semantics to morphology, syntax, and phonology. It provides a readable introduction to the field of cognitive linguistics. For this edition, the author has added a further chapter which updates the book, particularly in its treatment of lexical semantics.
