"Words and Things deals with language as human behavior and seeks to explain it as such. It looks for rthe origins of language in the world fo children and primitives and traces its development into the subtle tool of propaganda and advertising that we know today. It reconstructs the process of choosing sounds for ideas and looks for the earliest root words with which language began. by revealing the origins of language, Words and Things leads us to understand why we can guess the meaning of foreign words with more than chance success; it leads us to understand the world of the man who has but one word for 'blue' and 'green'; it brings us to understand a world that became ours with our native tongue--a world of 'dry' martinis, G.I. Joes, and unpopular commercials that increase sales. Words and things is based on the accumulated knowledge from generations of scholarship, as well as the most recent scientific research by linguists, pschologists, and others. It is most notable for the original and important contributions of the author, who is an outstanding authority in this field"--Provided by publisher

Cognitive development in children; five monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development by Society for Research in Child Development( Book )

9 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five conference reports that originally appeared as monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development concern cognition in young children. Included in a section on thought are articles on Piaget and his theories, computer simulation on human thinking, and an information processing theory of intellectual development. The development of perception, mediating responses, verbal factors in discrimination, styles of conceptualization, equivalence transformations, mathematical models, and Soviet research are discussed. Six articles consider language acquisition (the development of grammar, syntax, verbal behavior, linguistic structure, and nonaphasic disorders), while seven describe mathematical learning. European research in cognitive development is discussed: operational thought and symbolic imagery, formal reasoning in test situations, the evolution of thought, problem solving and past experience, speech and thought in subnormality, perceptual development in preschoolers, development of higher nervous activity, and the formation of identity of visual characteristics of objects seen successively.

6 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The topics treated in this second conference represent, to a major extent, unfinished business of the first conference. A reading of the proceedings of the first conference will reveal, at several points, concern with matters such as meaningfulness, familiarity, syntax, immediate memory, and one-trial learning. Few of these topics were treated explicitly in the first meeting, but they all received direct treatment in the present conference. Other topics treated here did not figure in the earlier deliberations as directly as those just mentioned, but again, the record of the first conference shows some concern with mediational mechanisms and the selectivity which subjects often show in the responses they give to specific situations. The treatments in this second conference of stimulus selection, mediated associations, and purpose and associative selectivity are relevant to these concerns touched on a year and a half ago. Recognition processes, the remaining subject in the second conference, are regarded as basic to many other issues. There is, then, a good deal of continuity between the conferences. Taken together, they give a picture of substantial scope of the fields of verbal learning and verbal behavior and of their interrelationships"--Book.
