What is it about?

The problem of how human language relates to the human brain is deep enough. Mainstream thinking in linguistic and cognitive sciences supports the possibility of integration of language and linguistic cognition with brain structures. This article examines this view in depth and shows that this may be plausible in certain limited contexts but flawed in most others.

Why is it important?

This work is significant in the context of current theoretical and empirical advances in bio-linguistics and cognitive science that appear to fail to take into due consideration the deep problems in relating human language to its neurobiology.


I hope this article makes people understand and appraise the complexity involved in linking linguistic structures to brain structures.
