Ronald W. Langacker received his Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Illinois in 1966. Starting at that time, he was a professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of California, San Diego, retiring in 2003. After his training and early research in generative syntactic theory, Langacker largely devoted the first ten years of his professional career to the comparative grammar and historical reconstruction of the Uto-Aztecan family of Native American languages. In 1976 he began developing the theory that has come to be known as Cognitive Grammar. Through the years, this framework has continued to be refined, further articulated, and applied to a progressively wider range of languages and phenomena. Langacker is a founding member of the International Cognitive Linguistics Association and served as its president from 1997-99. He is a member of numerous editorial and advisory boards and has published a substantial number of books and articles dealing with a broad array of issues in cognitive linguistics.
