about this item

In what ways are language, cognition and perception interrelated? Do they influence each other? This book casts a fresh light on these questions. It presents experimental research which identifies language-perception/cognition effects as being highly sensitive to individual-specific patterns of entrenched linguistic knowledge (cognitive contexts). This finding forms the basis of a new, speaker-focused usage-based model of linguistic relativity.
