The present volume on Logic and Linguistics is one in a series of five presenting the findings of a joint European study on cognitive science 1987-88, under the FAST programme. Cognitive science is held to include the investigation of both biological and artificial intelligence (AI). Each volume presents a review of one subject area and a discussion of its possible contributions to the development of cognitive science in the next 5-10 years. This volume considers how linguistics (structure and use of languages) and logic (form and correctness of argumentation) are realised by psychological mechanisms or biological processes and whether these processes can be transferred to information processing machines. Particular topics discussed include speech, grammar frameworks, logical semantics, understanding, concrete linguistic description, natural language systems and finally reasoning and cognition.
