CogLing is about Cognitive Linguistics and related disciplinesEdit

CogLing is primarily about Cognitive Linguistics and related disciplines. By related disciplines we understand other disciplines (and people and publications associated with them) that either overlap with Cognitive Linguistics in certain areas or disciplines that have somehow influenced Cognitive Linguistics positively or negatively. This means that articles relating to topics that are not per se part of the Cognitive Linguistics framework are welcome. However, only those aspects that are relevant to Cognitive Linguistics should be described in detail. Aspects that are only marginally relevant (such as the general characteristics of the discipline, topic, or framework in question) should not be described in-depth while irrelevant aspects should be left out completely.
