Semantics and Cognition

Portada
MIT Press, 1983 - 283 páginas
This book emphasizes the role of semantics as a bridge between the theory of language and the theories of other cognitive capacities such as visual perception and motor control. It develops the position that the study of semantics of natural language is the study of the structure of thought, and that grammatical structure offers a much more important source of evidence for the theory of cognition than is often supposed by linguists, philosophers, psychologists, or computer scientists.

Semantics and Cognition is included in the series, Current Studies in Linguistics.
