The emergence of language by Brian MacWhinney( )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly four centuries, our understanding of human development has been controlled by the debate between nativism and empiricism. Nowhere has the contrast between these apparent alternatives been sharper than in the study of language acquisition. However, as more is learned about the details of language learning, it is found that neither nativism nor empiricism provides guidance about the ways in which complexity arises from the interaction of simpler developmental forces. For example, the child's first guesses about word meanings arise from the interplay between parental guidance, the child's perceptual preferences, and neuronal support for information storage and retrieval. As soon as the shape of the child's lexicon emerges from these more basic forces, an exploration of "emergentism" as a new alternative to nativism and empiricism is ready to begin. This book presents a series of emergentist accounts of language acquisition. Each case shows how a few simple, basic processes give rise to new levels of language complexity. The aspects of language examined here include auditory representations, phonological and articulatory processes, lexical semantics, ambiguity processing, grammaticality judgment, and sentence comprehension. The approaches that are invoked to account formally for emergent patterns include neural network theory, dynamic systems, linguistic functionalism, construction grammar, optimality theory, and statistically-driven learning. The excitement of this work lies both in the discovery of new emergent patterns and in the integration of theoretical frameworks that can formalize the theory of emergentism
The Handbook of child language by Paul Fletcher( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, in its 25 definitive chapters on normal and nonnormal language development, represents the authoritative and up-to-date complete sourcebook on child language development. All aspects of child language development are addressed, including phonetics, phonology, grammar, and lexical development. Connectionism and government-binding theory, as applied to language development, are fully represented. The relevance of input, cognition, and social factors to language development is explored. Chapters on methodology, particularly using computer databases, are provided for both normal and nonnormal acquisition
The handbook of language emergence by Brian MacWhinney( )

26 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the latest integrated theory for understanding human language. The authors focus on the ways in which the learning, processing, and structure of language emerge from a competing set of cognitive, communicative, and biological constraints. In addition, the book examine forces on widely divergent time scales, from instantaneous neurolinguistic processing to historical changes and language evolution. Key theoretical, empirical, and methodological issues are also addressed"--
The CHILDES project : tools for analyzing talk by Brian MacWhinney( Book )

51 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Competing motivations in grammar and usage by Brian MacWhinney( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the conflicting factors that shape the content and form of grammatical rules in language, which speakers and addressees need to contend with when expressing themselves and when trying to comprehend messages. Chapters examine adult language, first and second language acquisition, and the motivations behind historical change

Embodiment, ego-space, and action by Roberta L Klatzky( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The majority of research on human perception and action examines sensors and effectors in relative isolation. What is less often considered in these research domains is that humans interact with a perceived world in which they themselves are part of the perceptual representation, as are the positions and actions (potential or ongoing) of other active beings. It is this self-in-world representation that we call embodiment. Increasingly, research demonstrates that embodiment is fundamental to both executing and understanding spatially

The Childes Project Tools for Analyzing Talk: Transcription Format and Programs by Brian MacWhinney( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume I is the first of two volumes that document the three components of the CHILDES Project. It is divided into two parts which provide an introduction to the use of computational tools for studying language learning. The first part is the CHAT manual, which describes the conventions and principles of CHAT transcription and recommends specific methods for data collection and digitization. The second part is the CLAN manual, which describes the uses of the editor, sonic CHAT, and the various analytic commands. The book will be useful for both novice and experienced users of the CHILDES tools
