Editorial Reviews


"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
