About the Edition

This is the first book that gives a complete and comprehensive overview over research in the area of language comprehension at a high scientific standard. With contributions written by experts in each of the different subfields of language comprehension from input to representation, it provides a critical discussion and weighting of the large number of papers and data published over the last decade in this field.

  After hearing a new object name in a picture book, babies aged 15 to 18 months are able to transfer that new name to a real object, and even to drawings of . This book presents a current, interdisciplinary perspective on language requisites from both a biological/comparative perspective and from a developmental/learning perspective.

  Ultimately, we cannot fully account for the mysteries of language acquisition unless we also address the issues from a neurobiological perspective. Research has at least identified certain areas of the adult brain that are typically responsible for specific aspects of language, and these can serve as starting points for understanding children.   Their contributions are organised into six themed sections, covering word recognition, the mental lexicon, comprehension and discourse, language production, language development, and perspectives.

From Action to Language: Evidence and speculations, Luciano Fadiga and Alessandro D'Ausilio The Mirror Theory of Language: A neuro-linguist's perspective, Yosef Grodzinsky Some Issues in Current Language Acquisition Research, Jacques Mehler A Bayesian Evaluation of the Cost of Abstractness, Ewan Dunbar, Brian Dillon, and William. a Biological Perspective. Where did human language come from? Wernicke's area in modern humans is involved in comprehension of language. Broca's area is involved in motor control of speech. The cerebral asymmetries in the third point involve a localization of language skills in the dominant (generally left) hemisphere of the brain, and of.

From a biological perspective, the development of language, like the development of other organic systems, is an interaction between internal and external factors; specifically, between the child’s internal knowledge of linguistic structures and the external linguistic experience he receives.

The human language processor is conceived as a system that consists of several interrelated subsystems. Each subsystem performs a specific task in the complex process of language comprehension and production.

A subsystem receives a particular input, performs certain specific operations on this input and yields a particular output.

This book presents a current, interdisciplinary perspective on language requisites from both a biological/comparative perspective and from a developmental/learning perspective. Perspectives regarding language and language acquisition are advanced by scientists of various backgrounds -- speech, hearing, developmental psychology, comparative psychology, and language intervention.

Biological Approach: Nature An alternative approach to explaining the mechanisms and processes involved in language acquisition was proffered by Noam Chomsky, a distinguished linguist. Chomsky believed that language learning is facilitated by biological influences, particularly, innate mechanisms and capacities that emerge due to maturation.

Preface to the first edition Language comprehension and production is a uniquely human capability. We know little about the evolution of language as a human trait, possibly because our direct ancestors lived several million years ago.

This fact certainly impedes the desirable advances in the biological basis of any theory of language : Springer Berlin Heidelberg. Book Description. As the first title in the new series, New Directions in Communication Disorders Research: Integrative Approaches, this volume discusses a unique phenomenon in cognitive science, single-word reading, which is an essential element in successful reading -word reading is an interdisciplinary area of research that incorporates phonological, orthographic.

The paper argues that both evolutionary and genetic approaches to studying the biological foundations of speech and language could benefit from fractionating the problem at a finer grain, aiming not to map genetics to “language”—or even subdomains of language such as “phonology” or “syntax”—but rather to link genetic results to component formal operations that underlie processing the comprehension and production of linguistic representations.Psycholinguistics or psychology of language is the study of the interrelation between linguistic factors and psychological aspects.

The discipline is mainly concerned with the mechanisms by which language is processed and represented in the mind and brain; that is, the psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend, and produce language.
