A user's guide to thought and meaning by Ray Jackendoff ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A User's Guide to Thought and Meaning is Jackendoff's most important book since his groundbreaking Foundations of Language. Written with an informality that belies the originality of its insights, it presents a radical new account of the relation between language, meaning, rationality, perception, consciousness, and thought, and, extraordinarily, does this in terms a non-specialist will grasp with ease. Jackendoff starts out by looking at languages and what the meanings of words and sentences actually do. Finding meanings to be more adaptive and complicated than they're commonly given credit for, he is led to some basic questions: how do we perceive and act in the world? How do we talk about it? And how can the collection of neurons in the brain give rise to conscious experience? He shows that the organization of language, thought, and perception does not look much like the way we experience things, and that only a small part of what the brain does is conscious. He concludes that thought and meaning must be almost completely unconscious. What we experience as rational conscious thought--which we prize as setting us apart from the animals--in fact rides on a foundation of unconscious intuition. Rationality amounts to intuition enhanced by language." -- from publisher's website

A visual lexicon by Neil Cohn ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The most recognized unit in visual language is the 'panel,' though meaningful units do exist that are both smaller and larger than panels. This is similar to spoken languages, where lexical items can be both above or below the level of the 'word.' This paper will address these varying levels of representation in visual languge to lead toward a general understanding of what it means to have 'visual lexical items.'"

A force of change : the semantics of Chicago tribune advertisements by Neil Cohn ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Similar to the verbal form, various semantic processes can occur across sequences of images in interesting and effective ways. This piece examines metonymy, conceptual metaphors, and blending across a three-panel pattern used in strips from an advertising campaign by the Chicago tribune newspaper."
