Title: Language in Cognition
Subtitle: Uncovering Mental Structures and the Rules Behind Them
Written By: Cedric Boeckx
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1405158824.html
Description:

Wiley-Blackwell is pleased to announce the publication of Language in
Cognition.

This textbook explores the ways in which language informs the structure and
function of the human mind, offering a point of entry into the fascinating
territory of cognitive science. Focusing mainly on syntactic issues,
Language in Cognition is a unique contribution to this burgeoning field of
study.

* Guides undergraduate students through the core questions of linguistics
and cognitive science, and provides tools that will help them think about
the field in a structured way
* Uses the study of language and how language informs the structure and
function of the human mind to introduce the major ideas in modern cognitive
science, including its history and controversies
* Explores questions such as: what does it mean to say that linguistics is
part of the cognitive sciences; how do the core properties of language
compare with the core properties of other human cognitive abilities such as
vision, music, mathematics, and other mental building blocks; and what is
the relationship between language and thought?
* Includes an indispensable study guide as well as extensive references to
encourage further independent study
