Editorial Reviews

Review

"All students of language and cognition will want to read Ray Jackendoff's exciting new book. Almost for the first time, we have a work that suggests plausible bridges between theories of lexical semantics and theories of perceptual and cognitive processes, presented in a way specific enough to do us good." Lila Gleitman, University of Pennsylvania



Jackendoff's book is an important contribution to cognitive science. It is full of fascinating, even beautiful, hypotheses and results. The book provides systematic empirical evidence and a theoretical analysis concerning the nature of cognition. The results of this book provide major hope that there may yet be a calculus of thought.

(Kenneth Wexler, University of California)
