Abstract:

Linguistics, neurocognition, and phenomenological psychology are
fundamentally different fields of research. Helmut Schnelle provides an
interdisciplinary understanding of a new integrated field in which
linguists can be competent in neurocognition and neuroscientists in
structure linguistics. Consequently the first part of the book is a
systematic introduction to the function of the form and meaning-organising
brain component - with the essential core elements being perceptions,
actions, attention, emotion and feeling. Their descriptions provide
foundations for experiences based on semantics and pragmatics. The second
part is addressed to non-linguists and presents the structural foundations
of currently established linguistic frameworks. This book should be serious
reading for anyone interested in a comprehensive understanding of language,
in which evolution, functional organisation and hierarchies are explained
by reference to brain architecture and dynamics.

- Bridges the gap between neuroscience and principles of linguistics, and 
provides an interdisciplinary approach to perspectives of language form, use 
and meaning 
- Divided into two parts, allowing a basic and more comprehensive view for 
the beginner and advanced reader 
- Fully illustrated, with comprehensive descriptions to help understanding of 
the models of translating formalist linguistic structure descriptions into 
plausible neural models

4. Combination and integration of intelligent thought and feeling; 
Part II. Introducing Linguistics to Scientists: 
5. Introducing formal grammar; 
6. Grammar as life;
