We are delighted to announce that the Journal of Researches in Linguistics (https://jrl.ui.ac.ir/?lang=en) is scheduled to publish a special issue to research in Cognitive Linguistics through the open proposal process. We welcome high-quality theoretical and experimental full-research papers written in academic English that investigate themes that fall under any area within Cognitive Linguistics, including cognitive phonology, cognitive perspectives to morphology, cognitive grammar, cognitive semantics, cognitive pragmatics, cognitive approaches to discourse analysis, and cognitive sociolinguistics. Topics include but are not limited to:


·         conceptualization, conceptual operations, and construal


·         embodied cognition (from perception to cognition, simulation, image schemas)


·         categorization (radial categories and prototypicality, semantic network, fictive motion, conceptual metaphor, and metonymy)


·         context, entrenchment, and language change


·         constructionist approaches to language (constructions, and constructionalization)


·         mental space, conceptual blending, and emergent meaning


·         cognitive approach to multimodality


·          schematic systems and closed-class semantics


·         encyclopedic meaning, access semantics, frames


·         language, thought, universality, and language specificity


·         cultural cognition


·         interface between semantics and syntax, and interdisciplinary approaches to language and cognition (language and emotions, language and the brain)


·         Applied cognitive linguistics
