Lera Boroditsky mainly focuses on Metaphor, Space, Linguistic relativity, Cognitive psychology and Affect. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including ESPACE, Naturalism and Mandarin Chinese. Her Mandarin Chinese course of study focuses on Multilingualism and First language.
Her Space study incorporates themes from Fictive motion and Cognitive science. Her Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Construct and Mental representation. In her study, Perception is inextricably linked to Categorization, which falls within the broad field of Affect.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Perception, Metaphor, Space and Social psychology. Her studies in Cognitive psychology integrate themes in fields like Mental representation, Communication, Categorization, Reading and Construct. The various areas that she examines in her Metaphor study include Language and thought, Chemistry, Cognitive science, Framing and Mandarin Chinese.
Her studies examine the connections between Cognitive science and genetics, as well as such issues in Fictive motion, with regards to Experiential knowledge. The concepts of her Space study are interwoven with issues in Spatialization, Artificial intelligence, Embodied cognition and Representation. In her work, Semantics is strongly intertwined with Psycholinguistics, which is a subfield of Social psychology.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Metaphor, Cognitive psychology, Timeline, Framing and Space. As part of her studies on Metaphor, she frequently links adjacent subjects like Social psychology. Her Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Visual modality and Perception.
Her research in Framing intersects with topics in Analogy, Mindset and Language and thought. Her Space research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Repertoire, Representation and Reading. In her research, Categorization is intimately related to Set, which falls under the overarching field of Cognitive science.
