    Ira Noveck: Experimental Pragmatics. The Making of a Cognitive Science.Csaba Pléh - 2020 - Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (2-3).
    The review of Noveck’s Experimental Pragmatics shows that the book is a much-needed synthesis. It provides a mostly ToM- and Grice-based interpretation of experimental results in scalar inference, deixis, and logical errors. The main missing points are related to an almost exclusively descriptive view of language, and the under-elaboration of the issue of the background of knowledge processes. Rather than as a whole, the book shall be a central starting point for further broader approaches to the emerging field of experimental (...)

    The History of the Nature/Nurture Issue.Csaba Pléh - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (5):376-377.
    It is worthy to supplement Charney with two historical issues: (1) There were two rival trends in the rebirth of genetic thought in the 1960s: the universal and the variation related. This traditional duality suggested that heredity cannot be equated with genetic determinism. (2) The classical debates and reinterpretation of adoption/twin studies in the 1980s regarding intelligence suggested that the environment had a more active role in unfolding the genetic program.

    Speech as an Opportunistic Vehicle of Thinking.Csaba Pléh - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):695-696.
    Carruthers clearly identifies the basic issues involved in language and thought relations and argues for an adaptive central model. Similar conclusions were reached by classical research in the inner speech tradition. Sokolov (1968; 1972) especially emphasized that inner speech appears only when the task is difficult. The use of inner speech is not a necessity to transform representations, but it is called for when transformations become difficult. This might be related to the cognitive reorganizations leading to language as emphasized by (...)

    Some Cognitive Tools for Word Learning: The Role of Working Memory and Goal Preference.Mihály Racsmány, Ágnes Lukács, Csaba Pléh & Ildikó Király - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1115-1117.
    We propose that Bloom's focus on cognitive factors involved in word learning still lacks a broader perspective. We emphasize the crucial relevance of working memory in learning elements of language. Specifically, we demonstrate through our data that in impaired populations knowledge of some linguistic elements can be dissociated according to the subcomponent of working memory (visual or verbal) involved in a task. Further, although Bloom's concentration on theory of mind as a precondition for word learning is certainly correct, theory of (...)

    Hungarian Cross-Modal Priming and Treatment of Nonsense Words Supports the Dual-Process Hypothesis.Ágnes LukÁ, Cs & Csaba Pléh - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (6):1030-1031.
    Hungarian data provide support for differences in processing regular and irregular morphologies. Stronger priming was observed with “regular” stem types compared to “irregular” ones. Use of nonwords showed a reliance on the grammatical structure of the nonword: Analogical extension of “irregulars” can be observed only in “root” contexts; in other contexts all types were largely overregularized.

    Narrative Constructions and the Life History Issue in Brain–Emotions Relations.Zsolt Unoka, Eszter Berán & Csaba Pléh - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (3):168-169.
    Emotional reactions are rather flexible, due to the schema-like organization of complex socio-emotional situations. Some data on emotion development, and on certain pathological conditions such as alexithymia, give further support for the psychological constructivist view put forward by Lindquist et al. Narrative organization is a key component of this schematic organization. The self-related nature of narrative organization provides scaffolding to the contextual dependency of emotions.

    Residual Normality and the Issue of Language Profiles in Williams Syndrome.Csaba Pléh, Ágnes Lukács & Mihály Racsmány - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):766-767.
    One of the debated issues regarding Residual Normality (RN) is frequency sensitivity in Williams syndrome (WS). We present some data on frequency sensitivity in Hungarian WS subjects. Based on vocabulary measures, we suggest that instead of the across-the-board frequency insensitivity proposed by some, a higher frequency threshold characterizes these subjects’performance. Results from a category fluency task show that whereas frequency sensitivity in WS is in line with controls, error patterns imply a qualitatively distinct, looser categorical organization. Regarding the much-debated issue (...)
