This paintings offers a provocative conception: that drawings and sequential photographs are based similar to language. construction on modern theories from linguistics and cognitive psychology, it argues that comics are written in a visual language of sequential pictures that mixes with textual content. Like spoken and signed languages, visible narratives use a lexicon of systematic styles kept in reminiscence, ideas for combining those styles into significant devices, and a hierarchic grammar governing the mix of sequential photographs into coherent expressions. choked with examples and illustrations, this ebook info each one of those degrees of constitution, explains how cross-cultural changes come up in diversified visible languages of the realm, and describes what the latest neuroscience study finds in regards to the brain's comprehension of visible narratives. From this emerges the root for a brand new line of analysis in the linguistic and cognitive sciences, elevating exciting questions on the connections among language and the variety of people' expressive behaviours within the brain and brain.

Das Studienbuch ist ein grundlegender Beitrag zur Kognitionswissenschaft und führt in die nordamerikanisch geprägte kognitive Semantik unter Bezugnahme auf kognitiv-anthropologische Aspekte ein. Diese folgen den historischen Anfängen zur Frage nach dem Einfluss der Sprache auf die Kognition, beginnend mit Wilhelm von Humboldts Ansichtenbis hin zu aktuellen Neo-Whorfian Ansätzen zur sprachlichen Relativität. Das Studienbuch vereint verkörperungs- und gestalttheoretische Ansätze, um die vielschichtige Interaktion von Sprache und Kognition anhand der Raumlinguistik und Raumkognition exemplarisch darzustellen. Als Ausgangspunkt dient die Adaption gestalttheoretischer Gesetze der visuellen Wahrnehmung im unmittelbaren Raum von Objektzuschreibungen und der Orientierung im mittelbaren Raum und damit in der aktuellen Umwelt. Mit seinem interdisziplinären Ansatz schließt das Studienbuch ein Desiderat in der deutschsprachigen Forschungslandschaft. Dabei stehen die folgenden erkenntnistheoretischen Fragen im Vordergrund, die damit die Heuristik des Studienbuch einfassen: Welche semiotischen Enkodierungssysteme interagieren bei der Raumwahrnehmung? Welche gestalttheoretischen Gesetze sind konstitutiv in der Raumlinguistik? was once sind mögliche Universalien, und wo zeigen sich kulturspezifische, sprachliche Ausprägungen in der Raumlinguistik und Raumkognition?

The formalism is designed to symbolize which means as stumbled on at numerous degrees, together with easy semantic devices and kinfolk, notice which means, sentence-level phenomena, and text-level which means. by way of drawing on primary rules of application layout, the proposed formalism is either effortless to learn and adjust but sufficiently robust to permit for the illustration of advanced semantic phenomena.
