COGNITIVE INTERFACES: Constraints on Linking Cognitive Information
Emile van de Zee, University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, and
Edited by Urpo Nikanne, University of Oslo

This book brings new perspectives to bear on the architecture of the
mind and the relationship between language and cognition. It
considers how information is linked in the mind between different
cognitive and expressive levels - so that people can, for example,
talk about what they see and act upon what they hear - and how these
linkages are and need to be constrained. The book is concerned in
particular with the perception and representation of spatial
structure. The authors, all psychologists and linguists, show that
insights can be gained from the joint deployment of theoretical
linguistic and experimental psychological research and the value of a
multi-disciplinary approach to the study of mind, brain, and language.

LINGUISTIC STRUCTURE AND CHANGE: An Explanation from Language Processing
Thomas Berg, University of Hamburg

Thomas Berg analyzes language as a psychological phenomenon in order
to reach a clearer understanding of why the structure of language is
the way it is and how it changes. He claims that real explanations of
the structure of language can only emerge by establishing connections
between language and its context. The explanatory power of one of
these contexts, the psychological one, is examined in detail.

BILINGUAL ACQUISITION: Theoretical Implications of a Case Study
Margaret Deuchar, University of Wales, Bangor, and
