It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

 Aims & Scope

The Journal of Cognitive Science (JCS) is published quarterly (from the year 2011) as the official journal of International Association for Cognitive Science (IACS) by the Institute for Cognitive Science at Seoul National University, located in Seoul, Korea.

It aims to publish research articles of the highest quality and significance within the disciplines that form cognitive science, including philosophy, psychology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, anthropology, and education. Submissions that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries in either themes or methods are especially encouraged. Contributions may be in the form of articles, brief reports, reviews, or squibs.

The JCS showcases quality research, encourages the exchange of ideas, and illustrates the interdisciplinary work that is the hallmark of cognitive science. Authors who have published in JCS include Paul Smolensky, Alfonso Caramazza, Dedre Gentner, Paul Thagard, and Jean-Pierre Descles.
