A cognition verb like â€˜knowâ€™, â€˜thinkâ€™, â€˜understandâ€™ or â€˜rememberâ€™ 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.
