Significant theoretical developments have taken place in language-cognition research in the last few decades. The collected chapters in this book provide extensive coverage of important areas of this research domain including bilingualism, sentence processing, and embodied cognition. The chapters written by experts provide the reader the most up to date discussion about issues and controversies while providing theoretical and empirical knowledge about these themes. In spite of the wide range of topics covered, there has been an attempt to make the collection thematically coherent providing the state of the art in language-cognition research.
The chapters have been written for both researchers as well as graduate students interested in basic issues in language-cognition research and their relevance for larger issues on language and cognition. The other most significant aspect of this volume is the emphasis on multi-disciplinary approaches and cross-cultural emphasis. The volume offers excellent material to researchers who wish to compare studies across languages and cultural boundaries. The basic purpose of the volume then is to present substantially the main arguments and research themes as well as methodological issues in the broad area of language-cognition research to a wider audience in linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology, neurosciences and cognitive science.
