Summary and Info
An excellent volume for bringing readers up to date with recent developments. . . . Language and Space can be considered a blueprint that should guide the future research in this area for years to come. -- Laura A. Carlson-Radvansky, Contemporary Psychology The study of the relationship between natural language and spatial cognition has the potential to yield answers to vexing questions about the nature of the mind, language, and culture. The fifteen original contributions in Language and Space bring together the most important theoretical viewpoints in the areas of psychology, linguistics, anthropology, and neuroscience, providing a much needed synthesis across these diverse domains. Chapters address such questions as: How does the brain represent space, how do we learn to talk about space, and should experimental tests of the relations between space and language be restricted to closed-class linguistic elements or must the role of open-class elements be considered as well?
