Product Overview

Linguistics, neurocognition and phenomenological psychology are fundamentally different fields of research. Helmut Schnelle's aim is to promote an interdisciplinary understanding of a new integrated field in which linguists will be competent in neurocognition and neuroscientists in structure linguistics. Consequently, the first part of the book is a systematic introduction to the functional constitution of the brain components that organize form and meaning. The essential core elements are perceptions, actions, attention, emotion and feeling. Their descriptions provide foundations for experience-based semantics and pragmatics. The second part is addressed to non-linguists in presenting the structure foundations and formal presentations of currently established linguistic frameworks. This book should be serious reading for anyone interested in a comprehensive understanding of language, in which evolution, functional organization and hierchies are explained by reference to brain architecture and dynamics
