A Cognitive Linguist’s Version of The BBC’s 100 Book List

I felt like a loser when the BBC 100 book list (even though it wasn’t actually from the Beeb) was going around because I had only read 5 of the books, so, in response:

Here is my list of 100 Cognitive Linguistics Books…[a list of articles is forthcoming...] I should mention that this list is not from the BBC, nor is it endorsed by them, nor was it created by them…this is the “SportLinguist 100 Cognitive Linguistics Book List”.

Instructions: Copy this into your NOTES on Facebook. Bold those books you own or you’ve read (in whole or in part) Tag other cognitive linguists. Tag me as well so I can see your responses!  Add any books you feel are missing.
