Title: Language and Conceptualization
Edited By: Jan Nuyts
Eric Pederson
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521774810
Series Title: Language Culture and Cognition, 1
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 amongst the most
difficult of 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, with an introduction by the editors which
surveys current work in the field. It is one of the first attempts to
tackle explicitly the issue of the relationship between linguistic and
conceptual representation from a truly interdisciplinary perspective. "I
recommend this book to anthropologists interested in language or cognition.
...all of the chapters provide succinct statements of general theory,
detailed ethnographic observations, or interesting experimental results."
Gary B. Palmer, American Anthropologist "...the book is of interest to
anthropological linguists interested in the relavance of our work to
cognitive science."
