9780199264377: Foundations of Language: Brain, Meaning, Grammar, Evolution

How does human language work? How do we put ideas into words that others can understand? Can linguistics shed light on the way the brain operates?

Foundations of Language puts linguistics back at the centre of the search to understand human consciousness. Ray Jackendoff begins by surveying the developments in linguistics over the years since Noam Chomsky's Aspects of the Theory of Syntax. He goes on to propose a radical re-conception of how the brain processes language. This opens up vivid new perspectives on every major aspect of language and communication, including grammar, vocabulary, learning, the origins of human language, and how language relates to the real world. Foundations of Language makes important connections with other disciplines which have been isolated from linguistics for many years. It sets a new agenda for close cooperation between the study of language, mind, the brain, behaviour, and evolution.

Recensione:

The book is ... a fascinating introduction to the world of linguistics. ... I found the book extremely interesting, captivating and important. If you are not sure about certain basic facts in the research of natural language, read this book. It will provide you with quite an objective view of the development of the research of language on all aspects. ( Linguist List)

A masterpiece ( Nature)

I believe this book has the potential to reorient linguistics more decisively than any book since Syntactic Structures shook the discipline almost half a century ago. ( Robbins Burling, Language in Society)

An excellent overview of the complexities of language ( New Scientist)

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 504 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.7in. x 1.2in.Already hailed as a masterpiece, Foundations of Language offers a brilliant overhaul of the last thirty-five years of research in generative linguistics and related fields. Few books really deserve the clich this should be read by every researcher in the field, writes Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct, But Ray Jackendoffs Foundations of Language does. Foundations of Language offers a radically new understanding of how language, the brain, and perception intermesh. The book renews the promise of early generative linguistics: that language can be a valuable entree into understanding the human mind and brain. The approach is remarkably interdisciplinary. Behind its innovations is Jackendoffs fundamental proposal that the creativity of language derives from multiple parallel generative systems linked by interface components. This shift in basic architecture makes possible a radical reconception of mental grammar and how it is learned. As a consequence, Jackendoff is able to reintegrate linguistics with philosophy of mind, cognitive and developmental psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and computational linguistics. Among the major topics treated are language processing, the relation of language to perception, the innateness of language, and the evolution of the language capacity, as well as more standard issues in linguistic theory such as the roles of syntax and the lexicon. In addition, Jackendoff offers a sophisticated theory of semantics that incorporates insights from philosophy of language, logic and formal semantics, lexical semantics of various stripes, cognitive grammar, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic approaches, and the authors own conceptual semantics. Here then is the most fundamental contribution to linguistic theory in over three decades. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
