Broca’s Area in System Perspective: Language in the Context of Action-Oriented Perception
A neurolinguistic approach to language is part of a performance approach that analyzes both perception and production. For production, there is much that could be possibly talked about which might be represented as cognitive structures from which some aspects are selected for possible expression. Further selection and transformation yield semantic structures (hierarchical constituents expressing objects, actions, and relationships) that constitute a semantic form. Finally, the ideas in the semantic form should be expressed in phonological form, that is, as words whose markings and ordering reflect the relationships within semantic form. This chapter extends the phonological form to embrace a wide range of ordered expressive gestures that may include speech, sign, and orofacial expressions.
