Item description for Cognitive Foundations of Interpretation (Verhandelingen, Afd. Letterkunde, Nieuwe Reeks) by Gerlof Bouma, Irene Kramer, Joost Zwarts, Alex Kuskowski, Persis Berlekamp, Elizabeth Blackburn, Glenn Barr & Kevin Nowlan...
How does cognition affect the understanding and use of language? Does interpretation fundamentally alter linguistic mechanisms? The papers collected in Cognitive Foundations of Interpretation argue that linguistics is the outcome of interaction and conflict resolution between the hearer's and speaker's perspectives. An esteemed group of contributors examines interpretation from theoretical, empirical, computational, and experimental perspectives. Chapters include discussion of typology, anaphora, focus, discourse, lexicon, and learning. This volume will interest linguists and students who are curious about the role of interpretation in language.
