Nhan đề: Semantics : primes and universals / Anna Wierzbicka Số phân loại : 401.43 A613; Đặc điểm vật lý: xii, 500Tr ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : Conceptual primitives and semantic universals are the cornerstones of a semantic theory which Anna Wierzbicka has been developing for many years. Semantics: Primes and Universals is a major synthesis of her work, presenting a full and systematic exposition of that theory in a non-technical and readable way. It delineates a full set of universal concepts, as they have emerged from large-scale investigations across a wide range of languages undertaken by the author and her colleagues. On the basis of empirical cross-linguistic studies it vindicates the old notion of the "psychic unity of mankind", while at the same time offering a framework for the rigorous description of different languages and cultures .

Nhan đề: Constructions at work : the nature of generalization in language / Adele E. Goldberg Số phân loại : 401.9 A102; Đặc điểm vật lý: 280 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : This book investigates the nature of generalization in language and examines how language is known by adults and acquired by children. It looks at how and why constructions are learned, the relation between their forms and functions, and how cross-linguistic and language-internal generalizations about them can be explained .

Nhan đề: The Oxford handbook of psycholinguistics / M. Gareth Gaskell Số phân loại : 401.9 G229; Đặc điểm vật lý: 859Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : The ability to communicate through spoken and written language is one of the defining characteristics of the human race, yet it remains a deeply mysterious process. The young science of psycholinguistics attempts to uncover the mechanisms and representations underlying human language. This interdisciplinary field has seen massive developments over the past decade, with a broad expansion of the research base, and the incorporation of new experimental techniques such as brain imaging and computational modelling. The result is that real progress is being made in the understanding of the key components of language in the mind .

Nhan đề: I-language : an introduction to linguistics as cognitive science / Daniela Isac and Charles Reiss Số phân loại : 410 D107; Đặc điểm vật lý: xii, 318 p. : ill. ; 26 cm
Tác giả khác: Charles Reiss
*Tóm tắt : I-Language introduces the uninitiated to linguistics as cognitive science. In an engaging, down-to-earth style Daniela Isac and Charles Reiss give a crystal-clear demonstration of the application of the scientific method in linguistic theory. Their presentation of the research programme inspired and led by Noam Chomsky shows how the focus of theory and research in linguistics shifted from treating language as a disembodied, human-external entity to cognitive biolinguistics - the study of language as a human cognitive system embedded within the mind/brain of each individual. The recurring theme of equivalence classes in linguistic computation ties together the presentation of material from phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. The same theme is used to help students understand the place of linguistics in the broader context of the cognitive sciences, by drawing on examples from vision, audition, and even animal cognitio .
