|Description:||"Language and Cognition" is a venue for the publication of high quality peer-reviewed research of a theoretical and/or empirical/experimental nature, focusing on the interface between language and cognition. It publishes research from the full range of subject disciplines, theoretical backgrounds, and analytical frameworks that populate the language and cognitive sciences, on a wide range of topics. Research published in the journal adopts an interdisciplinary, comparative, multi-methodological approach to the study of language and cognition and their intersection.
Representative topics published in the journal:
- interdisciplinary methods of investigations in the linguistic and cognitive sciences - theories and models of language in the mind - gesture and communication - psycholinguistic processing - neurolinguistics - origins and evolution of language and mind - human linguistic and conceptual development - non-human communication and cognition - symbolic cognition (the nature of semantic and conceptual representations; language, creativity and imagination; figurative language and thought; blending) - language, cognition, and behaviour (the cognitive dimension of linguistic socialisation; the intersection between language, thought and culture; discourse and embodied practice) - language as a window onto cognition (the relationship between linguistic structure and cognitive processes; language and its influences on thought) - applications of cognitive perspectives onto language for language education, therapy, translation practice, forensics, and more.
