  • All students of language and cognition will want to read Ray Jackendoff's exciting new book. Almost for the first time, we have a work that suggests plausible bridges between theories of lexical semantics and theories of perceptual and cognitive processes, presented in a way specific enough to do us good.

  • Jackendoff's book is an important contribution to cognitive science. It is full of fascinating, even beautiful, hypotheses and results. The book provides systematic empirical evidence and a theoretical analysis concerning the nature of cognition. The results of this book provide major hope that there may yet be a calculus of thought.
