This book explores the interaction of the grammar with the external
systems, conceptual-intentional of the description of the book and
sensori-motor. The papers in the Language section include configurational
analyses of the interface properties of depictives, clitic clusters,
imperatives, conditionals, clefts, as well as asymmetries in the structure
of syllables and feet. The Brain section discusses questions related to
human learning and comprehension of language: the acquisition of compounds,
the acquisition of the definite article, the subject/object asymmetry in
the comprehension of D-Linked vs. non D-linked questions, the evidence for
syntactic asymmetries in American Sign Language, the acquisition of
syllable types, and the role of stress shift in the determination of phrase
ending. The papers in the Computation section present different
perspectives on how the properties of UG can be implemented in a parser;
implementations of different theories including configurational selection,
incorporation, and minimalism; and the role of statistical and quantitative
approaches in natural language processing.
