Language Culture and Cognition

Back to Anthropology

Editor: Stephen C. Levinson

This series focuses on the role that language, in both its universal, psychological aspects and its variable, cultural aspects, plays in human cognition. Studies focus on the relation between semantic and conceptual categories and processes, especially as these are illuminated by cross-linguistic and cross-cultural studies, the study of language acquisition and conceptual development, and the study of the relation of speech production and comprehension to other kinds of behaviour in cultural context. Books come principally, though not exclusively, from research associated with the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, and in particular the Cognitive Anthropology Research Group.
