Delegation, subdivision, and modularity: How rich is Conceptual Structure?

  • Damián Justo (a1), Julien Dutant (a2), Benoît Hardy-Vallée (a3), David Nicolas (a4) and Benjamin Q. Sylvand (a5)...

Contra Jackendoff, we argue that within the parallel architecture framework, the generality of language does not require a rich conceptual structure. To show this, we put forward a delegation model of specialization. We find Jackendoff's alternative, the subdivision model, insufficiently supported. In particular, the computational consequences of his representational notion of modularity need to be clarified.
