Title: Language and Conceptualization
Edited By: Jan Nuyts
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521553032
Description:

To what extent is conceptualization based on linguistic representation? And
to what extent is it variable across cultures, communities or even
individuals? Of crucial importance in the attempt to develop a
comprehensive theory of human cognition, these remain among the most
difficult questions in the cognitive sciences. This volume brings together
ten new contributions from leading scholars working in a wide cross section
of disciplines, including linguistics, anthropology, psychology and philosophy.
