    Perception 41:1128-52. 2012
    ..An examination of spatial language both raises the bar for theories of vision and provides important hints for how spatial understanding is structured...

    Program in Linguistics, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA 02454, USA
    Behav Brain Sci 26:651-65; discussion 666-707. 2003
    ..It results in a view of linguistic performance in which the rules of grammar are directly involved in processing. Finally, it leads to a natural account of the incremental evolution of the language capacity...
