The 'language and space' area is a relatively new research area in cognitive science. Studying how language and spatial representation are linked in the human brain mainly draws on research in existing disciplines focusing on language, perception, categorization and development. Each of the contributors in this book explicitly defines the notion of ‘function’, ‘feature’, or ‘functional feature’ within their own theoretical framework, presents research in which such a notion plays a pivotal role, and discusses the contribution of functional features in .   1.

Functional Features in Language and Space: Insights from Perception, Categorization, and Development (Language and Space) Laura Carlson, Emile van der Zee (Editors) The 'language and space' area is a relatively new research area in cognitive science.

1 Functional Features in Language and Space; Part One —Features: Derived from Perception, Action, and Embodiment. 2 Language is Grounded in Action; 3 The Bicycle Pedal is in Front of the Table. Why some Objects do not Fit into some Spatial Relations; 4 Dissociation between Verbal and Pointing Responding in Perspective Change Problems.   The notions of 'function', 'feature' and 'functional feature' are associated with relatively new developments and insights in several areas of cognition. This book brings together different definitions, insights and research related to defining these notions from such diverse areas as language, perception, categorization and development. The course uses an integrated approach to language teaching that teaches all of the four language skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing—in natural settings. Both Instructors and Student Teachers are encouraged to respond through pair and group work and active learning strategies, such as role play, debates, presentations.

This book gives a practical approach to understanding implementations of non-strict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. The book is intended to be a source of practical labwork material, to help make functional-language implementations `come alive’, by helping the reader to develop, modify and experiment with some non-trivial by:   Some language features I believe to be especially important in children’s books are: the choice of words – suitable to audience and genre, the structure of the story and how it is presented on the page, repetition of words throughout the story and also the continuation of prominent characters or themes in a series, rhyme, rhythmic flowing pace that carries the story along and descriptive.
