Abstract:

Human languages reside in human brains, and it is undeniable that
properties of the mind/brain place strong constraints on linguistic
structure. Yet most linguists know little about the psychology of language
and even less about its neural substrate. Language, Mind and Brain explores
these constraints and shows how linguistics could benefit by incorporating
insights from research on language acquisition, language processing,
neurolinguistics and other disciplines concerned with human linguistic
abilities. The first part of the book offers a useful introduction to the
relevant issues for readers with little prior knowledge of these
disciplines. In the second part, the cognitive underpinnings of language
are discussed in more detail in three case studies chosen to illuminate
complementary aspects of linguistic structure (the semantics of locative
terms, morphological rules, the syntax of English questions). The final
chapter is devoted to approaches to language which meet the requirements
outlined earlier, with particular prominence given to cognitive and
construction grammar.

Features

* A unique contribution to the debate on the relationship between language
and other cognitive processes

* Accessible text which introduces readers to a psychologically realistic
theory of language

* Includes a definitive introduction and case studies to illustrate key topics.
