Book Information

   

Title: Event Representation in Language and Cognition
Edited By: Jürgen Bohnemeyer
Eric Pederson
Series Title: Language Culture and Cognition 11
Description:

Event Representation in Language and Cognition examines new research into
how the mind deals with the experience of events. Empirical research into
the cognitive processes involved when people view events and talk about
them is still a young field. The chapters by leading experts draw on data
from the description of events in spoken and signed languages, first and
second language acquisition, co-speech gesture and eye movements during
language production, and from non-linguistic categorization and other
tasks. The book highlights newly found evidence for how perception,
thought, and language constrain each other in the experience of events. It
will be of particular interest to linguists, psychologists, and
philosophers, as well as to anyone interested in the representation and
processing of events.
