Researchers with backgrounds in theoretical linguistics, computational
linguistics, psycholinguistics, and psychology have contributed to the
interdisciplinary discussion of the interface between conceptual
representations and linguistic structures. This book fills a critical
gap in cognitive science. The study implements the objective of
determining the impact that adjoining non-linguistic cognitive systems
have on linguistic encoding, the mapping between representations, and
the requirements of language processing. In this setting event
con-ceptualization and verbalization is treated as one central
phenomenon from the different interdisciplinary
viewpoints. Theoretical analyses are confronted with psycholinguistic
findings about the processing of event representations. Further
empirical issues like the influence of visual perception on speech
become apparent since we are primarily concerned with the overall
architecture of the language processing system as an integral part of
the cognitive endowment. Here, the lexicon is recognized as a mediator
between linguistic and non-linguistic, semantic and syntactic
components. The volume constitutes a major contribution to knowledge
in the field and will be of value to an interdisciplinary audience.
