Abstract:

Wiley-Blackwell is pleased to announce the publication of Language in
Cognition.

This textbook explores the ways in which language informs the structure and
function of the human mind, offering a point of entry into the fascinating
territory of cognitive science. Focusing mainly on syntactic issues,
Language in Cognition is a unique contribution to this burgeoning field of
study.

* Guides undergraduate students through the core questions of linguistics
and cognitive science, and provides tools that will help them think about
the field in a structured way
* Uses the study of language and how language informs the structure and
function of the human mind to introduce the major ideas in modern cognitive
science, including its history and controversies
* Explores questions such as: what does it mean to say that linguistics is
part of the cognitive sciences; how do the core properties of language
compare with the core properties of other human cognitive abilities such as
vision, music, mathematics, and other mental building blocks; and what is
the relationship between language and thought?
* Includes an indispensable study guide as well as extensive references to
encourage further independent study

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
