The power of cross-linguistic analysis: A key tool for developing explanatory models of human language
Graduate studies at Western
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (6):1036-1037 (1999)
|Abstract||Clahsen's compelling evidence for the dual-mechanism model of the lexicon derives in part from the use of cross-linguistic data in psycholinguistic research. This approach reflects a growing (and positive) trend toward incorporating data from several languages when analyzing and modeling human language behavior. This perspective should be expanded to include data from typologically distinct languages to develop more explanatory models of language.|
