Language, Speech, and Communication

The Theory of Generalized Conversational Implicature

This is the first extended discussion of preferred interpretation in language understanding, integrating much of the best research in linguistic pragmatics from the last two decades.

The landmark reference in the field, completely updated: a comprehensive treatment of a disorder that is more prevalent than autism.

A comprehensive theory-based approach to the treatment of text meaning in natural language processing applications.

Volume 1: Concept Structuring Systems and Volume 2: Typology and Process in Concept Structuring

In this two-volume set, Talmy approaches the question of how language organizes conceptual material both at a general level and by analyzing a crucial set of particular conceptual domains: space and time, motion and location, causation and force interaction, and attention and viewpoint.

Concept Structuring Systems
Typology and Process in Concept Structuring

This book covers topics in formal linguistics, intonational phonology, computational linguistics, and experimental psycholinguistics, presenting them as an integrated theory of the language faculty.

The Integration of Habits and Rules
A Guide to Experiments on the Acquisition of Syntax and Semantics

Children with Specific Language Impairment covers all aspects of SLI, including its history, possible genetic and neurobiological origins, and clinical and educational practice.

This book offers an interdisciplinary look at the acquisition, loss, and remediation of normal reading processes.

Evidence from Early Language Comprehension
Edited by Paul Bloom

The fifteen original contributions in Language and Space bring together the major lines of research and the most important theoretical viewpoints in the areas of psychology, linguistics, anthropology, and neuroscience, providing a much needed synthesis across these diverse domains.

Computational Models of Reading

The book takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of reading, with contributions from computer science, psychology, and philosophy.

The Resource Logic Approach
Edited by Mary Dalrymple

This introduction to and overview of the "glue" approach is the first book to bring together the research of the major contributors to the field.

Superior to any other book on the subject that I have seen. I can see it being used as a class text or reference for current theory in sign language phonology.Carol A. Padden, Department of Communication, University of California

This book is designed in part as a handbook to assist students and researchers in the choice and use of methods for investigating children's grammar.

An Electronic Lexical Database

WordNet is an on-line lexical reference system whose design isinspired by current psycholinguistic theories of human lexical memory;version 1.6 is the most up-to-date version of the system.

The first formally elaborated theory of a generative approach to word meaning, The Generative Lexicon lays the foundation for an implemented computational treatment of word meaning that connects explicitly to a compositional semantics.
