This chapter outlines the starting points and guiding assumptions for the Theory of Lexical Concepts and Cognitive Models (LCCM Theory). LCCM Theory arises from five recent developments in the language sciences which are explored in detail. The chapter also discusses the principled distinction at the heart of LCCM Theory: the presumption that the linguistic and conceptual system consist of distinct types of representation: the lexical concept and the cognitive model.

Keywords:   lexical concepts, representation, cognitive models, linguistic system, situated language sciences, conceptual system
