Biological Foundations of Linguistic Communication
Towards a biocybernetics of language
This is the second of two volumes – the first volume being Waltraud Brennenstuhl’s <i>Control and Ability</i> (P&B III:4) – treating biocybernetical questions of language. This book starts out from an investigation of the (neuro-)biological relevancy of natural language from the point of view of grammar and the lexicon. Furthermore, the basic mechanisms of the self-organization of organisms in their environments are discussed, in so far as they lead to linguistic control and abilities.
