A Study of Language Deviations and Cognitive Processes. Progress Report No. 3.
Brent, Sandor B.; Katz, Evelyn W.
This report summarizes the work completed and outlines the plans for future research of an ongoing research program of the department of psychology at Wayne State University. The program is concerned with the identification and description of cross-cultural and developmental differences in the conceptualization and linguistic expression of spatial, temporal, causal, and logical relationships. Several specific areas of concentration within this broad topic have emerged: (1) investigations of cultural, developmental, contextual, and situational factors which influence the connectedness and coherence of spontaneous discourse; (2) developmental and normative investigations of the principles underlying the usage and comprehension of linguistic clause connectors (grammatical conjunctions); and (3) investigations of cross-cultural and developmental differences in the principles underlying the conceptualization and linguistic representation of simple geometric forms and concrete spatial relationships.
