Abstract:

Linguistics, neurocognition, and phenomenological psychology arefundamentally different fields of research. Helmut Schnelle provides aninterdisciplinary understanding of a new integrated field in whichlinguists can be competent in neurocognition and neuroscientists instructure linguistics. Consequently the first part of the book is asystematic introduction to the function of the form and meaning-organisingbrain component - with the essential core elements being perceptions,actions, attention, emotion and feeling. Their descriptions providefoundations for experiences based on semantics and pragmatics. The secondpart is addressed to non-linguists and presents the structural foundationsof currently established linguistic frameworks. This book should be seriousreading for anyone interested in a comprehensive understanding of language,in which evolution, functional organisation and hierarchies are explainedby reference to brain architecture and dynamics.

- Bridges the gap between neuroscience and principles of linguistics, andprovides an interdisciplinary approach to perspectives of language form, useand meaning- Divided into two parts, allowing a basic and more comprehensive view forthe beginner and advanced reader- Fully illustrated, with comprehensive descriptions to help understanding ofthe models of translating formalist linguistic structure descriptions intoplausible neural models
