(ed.), pp. 370–387
We present a new road map for research on “How the Brain Got Language” that adopts an EvoDevoSocio perspective and highlights comparative neuroprimatology – the comparative study of brain, behavior and communication in extant monkeys and great apes – as providing a key grounding for hypotheses on… read more | Chapter
In this paper, I argue that an important component of the language-ready brain is the ability to recognize and conceptualize events. By ‘event’, I mean any situation or activity in the world or our mental life, that we find salient enough to individuate as a thought or word. While this may sound… read more | Chapter

Pustejovsky, James 2016 Situating Events in LanguageConceptualizations of Time, Lewandowska-Tomaszczyk, Barbara (ed.), pp. 27–42
It is currently acknowledged that events constitute an integral part of the metaphysics and semantic machinery for interpreting natural language utterances (Davidson 1967, 1980). Most research into event semantics since Davidson and Parsons (Parsons 1990) has focused on questions relating to either… read more | Article
Pustejovsky, James 2012 The semantics of functional spacesPractical Theories and Empirical Practice: A linguistic perspective, Schalley, Andrea C. (ed.), pp. 307–324
In this chapter I examine the ways in which languages encode the distinction between location and place, generally, and between objects and their uses in space, in particular. I develop a type-theoretic semantic formalism to model the notion of ‘function’, whether associated with a region or… read more | Article
