Words, grammar, and number concepts: Evidence from development and aphasia

  • Rosemary Varley (a1) and Michael Siegal (a2)
Abstract

Bloom's book underscores the importance of specifying the role of words and grammar in cognition. We propose that the cognitive power of language lies in the lexicon rather than grammar. We suggest ways in which studies involving children and patients with aphasia can provide insights into the basis of abstract cognition in the domain of number and mathematics.
