Example text

Douven and Van Brakel (1998) note that whether two things belong to the same natural kind in the Putnamian sense depends on whether they obey the same objective laws. These objective laws cannot just be the laws of physics: the laws that are relevant for the demarcation of a natural kind term like multiple sclerosis include the principles of the medical and biological sciences rather than just physics. But the limits of these sciences, and therefore the identification of the laws that belong to them, may be subject to discussion and social variation: what is considered medicine, for instance, is not simply and straightforwardly objectively given but may depend on social values.

Further, it has been pointed out (Berthele 2001; Geeraerts 2003) that such models may also characterize the beliefs that language users entertain regarding language and language varieties. In this way, Cognitive Linguistics may link up with existing sociolinguistic research about language attitudes. Second, there is a growing tendency in the theoretical conception of language entertained by Cognitive Linguistics to stress the social nature of language. Researchers like Sinha (1999; Sinha and Jensen de Lo´pez 2000), Zlatev (2003), and Harder (2003) emphasize that the experientialist nature of Cognitive Linguistics does not only refer to material factors (taking embodiment in a physical and physiological sense) but that the cultural environment and the socially interactive nature of language should be recognized as primary elements of a cognitive approach.
