Example text

The use of words to coordinate our actions, to plan, to bind us into communities, to express our feelings, to develop knowledge, and to create new meaning is a grand and wondrous accomplishment. Let us remember, though, that language is not the sole repository of human meaning, conceptualization and thought. Work in the cognitive 42 Roberta Pires de Oliveira and Robson de Souza Bittencourt sciences has revealed the vast territories of meaning-making that are embodied and non-linguistic, and it has shown some of the ways that the linguistic is grounded in the non-linguistic.

However, our position is that language is not a neural system at the same level of analysis as systems such as these. I believe that language and mind use these same cortical subprocesses of these neural systems – just in an off-line, emulative way. When neuroscientists write about the brain’s “semantic system”, they typically mean something at the end of “objectrecognition system”, typically in the anterior temporal cortex, because our prototype example of semantics is object-naming. Naturally, many of them have been pleasantly surprised by my work and that of Hauk, Johnsrude and Pulvermuller (2004) showing that primary and secondary sensorimotor cortical areas respond to linguistic stimuli for body parts.
