Architectures and Mechanisms for Language Processing
Matthew W. Crocker, Martin Pickering, Charles Clifton
Cambridge University Press, Nov 2, 2006 - Computers - 376 pages
The architectures and mechanisms underlying language processing form one important part of the general structure of cognition. This book, written by leading experts in the field, brings together linguistic, psychological, and computational perspectives on some of the fundamental issues. Several general introductory chapters offer overviews on important psycholinguistic research frameworks and highlight both shared assumptions and controversial issues. Subsequent chapters explore syntactic and lexical mechanisms, the interaction of syntax and semantics in language understanding, and the implications for cognitive architecture. This timely volume will appeal to students and scholars alike.
