The 'language and space' area is a relatively new research area in
cognitive science. Studying how language and spatial representation
are linked in the human brain mainly draws on research in existing
disciplines focusing on language, perception, categorization and
development. Representative researchers from these sub-disciplines of
cognitive science discuss new insights in their own field of expertise
and show what role their definition of 'function', 'feature', or
'functional feature' plays in their research. New research centred
around these concepts is on the forefront of developments in these
sub-disciplines and in the area of 'language and space'.
