Description

Chapter 8, ‘Language, Biology and Learning’, delves into the relationship between language and the brain, which has become an area of major interest to many linguists. As evidence for what the relationship between the brain and language entails, the chapter provides research on the brain itself, from perspectives provided by neurolinguistics, studies of aphasia and other forms of brain impairment, and from new brain-imaging techniques. It also draws on the research into how babies develop language and on second language learning, from perspectives of language acquisition and language development. It also includes a section on the debate of the extent to which animals show properties of human language in their communication.
