Cognition

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    A cognition verb like ‘know’, ‘think’, ‘understand’ or ‘remember’ denotes a concept that speakers are aware of because it denotes an event within their own minds, but often has only indirect correlates in the perceived world. As a result, speakers of different languages classify cognitive events in rather different ways, requiring us first to gain some insight into how speakers of present-day Oceanic languages classify these events.
