|Description:||How do we think? How do we give expression to our thoughts? These are fundamental questions posed by linguists investigating the ways language might be organized in the mind, psychologists who study perception, computer scientists wishing to model intelligence, or curious individuals wondering about the nature of human cognition. Answers lie within the human mind-brain, and the clearest, most observable expressions of human thought are found embedded and reflected in the processes of language.
Cognitive Science and Linguistics are two disciplines which seek to understand the human mind and experience. Cognitive Science, an area of psychology, examines the mind and its processes, including emotion, thought, creativity, and language. Linguistics is the study of language in all its forms, including natural language development, organization, and use. At McMaster they come together to form a unique undergraduate program: Cognitive Science of Language.
