Abstract:

This book presents recent research on the role of space as a mechanism in
language use and learning. It proceeds from the notion that cognition in
real time, developmental time, and over evolutionary time occurs in space,
and that the physical properties of space may provide insights into basic
cognitive processes, including memory, attention, action, and perception.
It looks at how physical space and landmarks are used in cognitive
representations and serve as the basis of human cognition in a range of
core mechanisms to index memories and ground meanings that are not
themselves explicitly about space. The editors have brought together
experimental psychologists, computer scientists, robotocists, linguists,
and researchers in child language in order to consider the nature and
applications of this research and in particular its implications for
understanding the processes involved in language acquisition.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
