Language in the Brain By Helmut Schnelle

“… the first part of the book is a systematic introduction to the functional constitution of form and meaning organizing brain components. The essential core elements are perceptions, actions, attention, emotion and feeling. Their descriptions provide foundations for experience-based semantics and pragmatics. The second part is addressed to non-linguists and presents the structure foundations and formal presentations of currently established linguistic frameworks. This book should be serious reading for anyone interested in a comprehensive understanding of language, in which evolution, functional organization and hierarchies are explained by reference to brain architecture and dynamics.”
