Linguistic and Cognitive Networks.
Lamb, Sydney M.
The type of network treated in this paper is a network of relationships. The author shows how linguistic data and cognitional data can be accounted for by means of such networks. He begins by looking at some linguistic data, with particular concern for identifying the relationships which they exhibit. That is, the emphasis is on their interrelationships rather than directly upon the items of data themselves. As he proceeds, he observes how the individual relationships are organized into larger configurations forming networks of relationships, and he finds that the types of relations and configurations of relations observable in linguistic data are also present in cognitional data. It then becomes interesting to view such linguistic and cognitive networks as models of the knowledge, or of some of the knowledge, that a typical human being has stored in his brain. This paper will appear in "Cognition: A Multiple View," forthcoming, to be be edited by Paul Garvin. (Author/DO)
