By Roberto G. de Almeida, Christina Manouilidou

Verbs play a big position in how occasions, states and different “happenings” are mentally represented and the way they're expressed in traditional language. along with their critical position in linguistics, verbs have lengthy been well known issues of study in analytic philosophy—mostly at the nature of occasions and predicate-argument structure—and an issue of empirical research in psycholinguistics, totally on argument constitution and its function in sentence comprehension. extra lately, the illustration of verb which means has been gaining momentum as a subject matter of analysis in different cognitive technological know-how branches, significantly neuroscience and the psychology of techniques. the current quantity is an expression of this contemporary surge within the research of verb constitution and which means from the interdisciplinary point of view of cognitive technology, with updated contributions through theoretical linguists, philosophers, psycholinguists and neuroscientists. the quantity provides new theoretical and empirical reports on how verb constitution and verb which means are represented, how they're processed in the course of language comprehension, how they're obtained, and the way they're neurologically applied. Cognitive technology views on Verb illustration and Processing is a mirrored image of the new collaboration among the disciplines that represent cognitive technology, bringing new empirical info and theoretical insights on a key section of typical language and conceptualization.
