Language Research Needs an "Emotion Revolution" and Distributed Models of the Lexicon
Caldwell-Harris, Catherine L.
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v11 n2 p169-171 Jul 2008
Pavlenko urges the community of language researchers to modify their conceptions of the mental lexicon, based on findings from bilingualism and emotions. She makes a compelling case. While reading her article, one can temporarily forget that in contemporary practice, emotion is not regarded as relevant to the theoretical question of the structure of the mental lexicon.
