The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes.

Title: Image, Language, Brain
Edited By: Alec Marantz
Yasushi Miyashita
Wayne O'Neil
Description:

Recent attempts to unify linguistic theory and brain science have grown out of recognition that a proper understanding of language in the brain must reflect the steady advances in linguistic theory of the last forty years. The first Mind Articulation Project Symposium addressed two main questions: How can the understanding of language from linguistic research be transformed through the study of the biological basis of language? And how can our understanding of the brain be transformed through this same research? The best model so far of such mutual constraint is research on vision. Indeed, the two long-term goals of the Project are to make linguistics and brain science mutually constraining in the way that has been attempted in the study of the visual system and to formulate a cognitive theory that more strongly constrains visual neuroscience.

The papers in this volume discuss the current status of the cognitive/neuroscience synthesis in research on vision, whether and how linguistics and neuroscience can be integrated, and how integrative brain mechanisms can be studied through the use of noninvasive brain-imaging techniques.

Alec Marantz and Wayne O’Neil are Professors of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Yasushi Miyashita is Professor of Physiology at the University of Tokyo School of Medicine. Professors Miyashita and O’Neil are Co-Directors of the Mind Articulation Project, an international cooperative research project of the Japan Science and Technology Corporation.
