"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

A study of thinking by Jerome S Bruner( Book )

40 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Study of Thinking is a pioneering account of how human beings achieve a measure of rationality in spite of the constraints imposed by bias, limited attention and memory, and the risks of error imposed by pressures of time and ignorance. First published in 1956 and hailed at its appearance as a groundbreaking study, it is still read three decades later as a major contribution to our understanding of the mind. In their insightful new introduction, the authors relate the book to the cognitive revolution and its handmaiden, artificial intelligence. The central theme of the work is that the scientific study of human thinking must concentrate upon meaning and its achievement rather than upon the behaviorists' stimuli and responses and the presumed connections between them. The book's point of departure is how human beings group the world of particulars into ordered classes and categories-concepts-in order to impose a coherent and manageable order upon that world. But rather than relying principally on philosophical speculation to make its point, A Study of Thinking reports dozens of experiments to elucidate the strategies that people use in penetrating to the deep structure of the information they encounter. This seminal study was a major event in the cognitive revolution of the 1950s. Reviewing it at the time, J. Robert Oppenheimer said it "has in many ways the flavor of conviction which makes it point to the future.""--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 )

10 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 38 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.

For many years, Roger Brown and his colleagues have studied the developing language of pre-school children--the language that ultimately will permit them to understand themselves and the world around them. This longitudinal research project records the conversational performances of three children, studying both semantic and grammatical aspects of their language development. These core findings are related to recent work in psychology and linguistics--and especially to studies of the acquisition of languages other than English, including Finnish, German, Korean, and Samoan. Roger Brown has written the most exhaustive and searching analysis yet undertaken of the early stages of grammatical constructions and the meanings they convey. The five stages of linguistic development Brown establishes are measured not by chronological age-since children vary greatly in the speed at which their speech develops--but by mean length of utterance. This volume treats the first two stages. Stage I is the threshold of syntax, when children begin to combine words to make sentences. These sentences, Brown shows, are always limited to the same small set of semantic relations: nomination, recurrence, disappearance, attribution, possession, agency, and a few others. Stage II is concerned with the modulations of basic structural meanings--modulations for number, time, aspect, specificity--through the gradual acquisition of grammatical morphemes such as inflections, prepositions, articles, and case markers. Fourteen morphemes are studied in depth and it is shown that the order of their acquisition is almost identical across children and is predicted by their relative semantic and grammatical complexity. It is, ultimately, the intent of this work to focus on the nature and development of knowledge: knowledge concerning grammar and the meanings coded by grammar; knowledge inferred from performance, from sentences and the settings in which they are spoken, and from signs of comprehension or incomprehension of sentences
Verbal behavior and learning: problems and processes; proceedings by Charles Norval Cofer( Book )

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.
