Traditionally, computation - the rule-driven manipulation of symbols -
as opposed to (lexical) storage, has been the main focus of research
in the language faculty. There is, however, increasing evidence of a
prominent role of storage. Constructions that could be computed not
necessarily always are. In this volume, the relative roles of
computation and storage are discussed, both theoretically and on the
basis of linguistic, psycholinguistic, and brain-imaging evidence,
with respect to a wide range of language phenomena, such as
morphological processing, syntactic processing, limitations of parsing
mechanisms, neural substrates of short-term storage versus
computation, and the processing of discourse. Each chapter has been
written by one or more outstanding experts in the field. The
contributions are thorough, but at the same time free from unnecessary
technical detail, so that the volume is accessible to experienced
readers as well as students in linguistics, psychology, and other
cognitive sciences.
