Resumen:
This presentation will consist in an introduction to neurocognitive linguistics from a relational-network perspective. First, the main tenets and theoretical requisites of neurocognitive linguistics will be briefly overviewed. Then, a description will be offered of Relational Network Theory (Lamb, 1966, 1974, 1999) as a realistic model of linguistic processing in real time. Finally, the neurological basis of the model will be explored by contrasting its theoretical constructs with neuroscientific evidence e.g., Abeles, 1991; Burnod, 1990; Damasio, 1998; Deacon, 1997; Hebb, 1949; Kandel, 1991; Lamb, 1999, 2000, 2004; Mountcastle, 1998; Pulvermüller, 2002). In conclusion, Relational Network Theory will be adduced to constitute a neurocognitively plausible model of human language.
