The Language Organ: Linguistics as Cognitive Physiology
Added by: vicktorx | Karma: 40.44 | Black Hole | 21 October 2009
This study treats human language as the manifestation of a faculty of the mind, which is seen as a mental organ whose nature is determined by human biology and whose functional properties should be explored as physiology explores the functional properties of physical organs. The book surveys the nature of the language faculty in its various aspects: the systems of sounds, words, and syntax, the development of language in the child and historically, what is known about its relation to the brain.
