The Actual and Potential Contributions of Physiology to the Study of Language.
Ryan, Michael G.
This paper advances answers to two questions: (1) Where do we stand now in terms of the contributions of physiology to the study of language? The answer to the first question is provided in the form of twelve propositions which review the contributions of physiology to the species specificity of language question, the neurological components of language question, the language development question, the language process question, and the language disorders question. The answer to the second question assumes the form of three propositions which predict that physiologists will adopt a language perspective, that the interdisciplinary nature of speech communication recommends the marriage of speech communication and physiology, and that physiology will characterize future language research. A 57-item bibliography is provided. (HOD)
