The author argues that language is a network of concepts which in turn is part of the general cognitive network of the mind. He challenges the widely-held view that language is an innate mental module with its own special internal organization. He shows that language has the same internal organization as other areas of knowledge such as social relations and action schemes, and reveals the rich links between linguistic elements and contextual categories. Language Networks will interest all those concerned with the structure, acquisition, and everyday operations of language, in particular scholars and advanced students in linguistics, psychology, and cognitive behavioural science.
