This chapter surveys the more recent literature on the embodied grounding of human cognition with a focus on the cognitive linguistic contributions to the study of the embodied cognition hypothesis. In particular, the survey is done from the vantage point of Cultural Linguistics. As a multidisciplinary area of research that explores the relationship between language, culture, and conceptualization and the function of cultural models at the level of cultural cognition, Cultural Linguistics integrates interests and concerns of Cognitive Linguistics with those of linguistic and cognitive anthropology (see Chapter 32 this volume).
