Abstract:

The papers assembled in this volume aim to contribute to our understanding of
the human capacity for language: the generative procedure that relates sounds
and meanings via syntax. Different hypotheses about the properties of this
generative procedure are under discussion, and their connection with biology
is open to important cross-disciplinary work. Advances have been made in
human-animal studies to differentiate human language from animal
communication. Contributions from neurosciences point to the exclusive
properties of the human brain for language. Studies in genetically based
language impairments also contribute to the understanding of the properties of
the language organ. This volume brings together contributions on theoretical
and experimental investigations on the Language Faculty. It will be of
interest to scholars and students investigating the properties of the
biological basis of language, in terms the modeling of the language faculty,
as well as the properties of language variation, language acquisition and
language impairments.
