Title: Language-Cognition Interface: State of the Art
Edited By: RameshKumarMishra
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Theoretical Linguistics 44

Significant theoretical developments have taken place in language-cognition
research in the last few decades. The collected chapters in this book provide
extensive coverage of important areas of this research domain including
bilingualism, sentence processing, and embodied cognition. The chapters
written by experts provide the reader the most up to date discussion about
issues and controversies while providing theoretical and empirical knowledge
about these themes. In spite of the wide range of topics covered, there has
been an attempt to make the collection thematically coherent providing the
state of the art in language-cognition research.

The chapters have been written for both researchers as well as graduate
students interested in basic issues in language-cognition research and their
relevance for larger issues on language and cognition. The other most
significant aspect of this volume is the emphasis on multi-disciplinary
approaches and cross-cultural emphasis. The volume offers excellent
material to researchers who wish to compare studies across languages and
cultural boundaries. The basic purpose of the volume then is to present
substantially the main arguments and research themes as well as
methodological issues in the broad area of language-cognition research to a
wider audience in linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology, neurosciences
and cognitive science.
