Abstract

Although ubiquitous in the English language, phrasal verbs are one of the most difficult constructions for English language learners to learn, as their meanings have traditionally been regarded as arbitrary and chaotic. However, recent developments in cognitive linguistics have shed light onto schematic motivations of phrasal verb meanings and thus present a number of pedagogical applications. The purpose of this handbook is to provide English language teachers with a foundation in the theory and pedagogical approaches to teaching phrasal verbs, using a cognitive linguistic framework.

Description

This chapter is from the Honors Thesis, "A Cognitive Linguistic Approach to Phrasal Verbs," which can be found at:http://digitalcommons.wou.edu/honors_theses/139/.
