  • Category Neutralityby Neil Whitman

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 47.95

    "Feature neutrality" is an issue that has received much attention among linguists. For example, consider the sentence, "I have never, and will never, put my name on this document." Here, the verb 'put' acts simultaneously as a past participle (as in "have never put") and a base form (as in "will never put"), and is therefore said to be neutral between... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

Accordingly, there is an extensive 'written language bias' in traditional and present day linguistics and other language sciences.... more...

  • Saying, Seeing and Actingby Kenny R. Coventry; Simon C. Garrod

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    Our use of spatial prepositions carries an implicit understanding of the functional relationships both between objects themselves and human interaction with those objects. This is the thesis rigorously explicated in Saying, Seeing and Acting. It aims to account not only for our theoretical comprehension of spatial relations but our ability to intercede... more...
