Time and language: Special journal issue

Recent research has established that time (the IQ Brain Clock) is very important in speech and language acquisition and behavior. Reflecting this consensus is a new issue of the journal Language Learning that is devoted to the topic of time/temporal processing and language.

I simply do not have the "time" (no pun intended) to read this issue. Listed below is a statement of the journals mission, followed by a listing of the articles in this special issue. I've provided a link to the introductory editorial (click here). If any reader is interested in reading a copy of any of the articles, in exchange for a summary that would be posted as a guest blog post at the IQ Brain Clock blog, drop me an email (iap@earthlink.net)
  • Language Learning is a scientific journal dedicated to the understanding of language learning broadly defined. It publishes research articles that systematically apply methods of inquiry from disciplines including psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, educational inquiry, neuroscience, ethnography, sociolinguistics, sociology, and semiotics. It is concerned with fundamental theoretical issues in language learning such as child, second, and foreign language acquisition, language education, bilingualism, literacy, language representation in mind and brain, culture, cognition, pragmatics, and intergroup relations. A subscription includes an annual supplement - a volume from the Best of Language Learning Series or the Language Learning Monograph Series - as well as a biennial monograph - the Language Learning-Max Planck Institute Cognitive Neurosciences Series.
