Special issue on speech/language

There is a Special Issue of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society that is now available on their web site. The issue was edited by Brian Moore, Lorraine Tyler, and William Marslen-Wilson.

The Table of Contents is copied here. There are tons of useful papers in this issue. Our group also has a paper (Poeppel, Idsardi & van Wassenhove, Speech perception at the interface of neurobiology and linguistics.)

Volume 363, Number 1493 / March 12, 2008 of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences is now available on the website at

This issue contains:
