This chapter develops the theoretical construct of the cognitive model. The cognitive model is a unit of conceptual structure which consists of a frame — or related and/or embedded frames — and gives rise to a potentially limitless number of simulations. Frames have complex structure. The chapter examines in detail the nature of two types of frames: frames for things and situations. A subset of lexical concepts — open-class lexical concepts — facilitate access to cognitive models, what is referred to as a cognitive model profile.

Keywords:   cognitive model, things, situations, open-class lexical concept, cognitive model profile
