The Linguistic Brain is a broad examination of phonology, syntax, morphology, and semantics conducted through the compound eyes of aphasiology, neurology, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, feature geometry, the principles and parameters approach, non-formal semantics, and philosophy, not to mention those approaches that resist classification. This breadth and diversity do not, however, make for babel. They constitute instead an investigation divisible into three sections: "From the Brain to Language," "From Language to the Brain," and "The Brain and Language Synthesis."
The overall purpose of The Linguistic Brain is to contribute to the development of a general model of language performance that is consistent with models of the brain's psychological and neurological systems.
