    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book provides empirical experimental evidence (including tracking of eye movements) for the contingency of human cognition on the grammar of one’s native language. Using the example of Czech and German, it also demonstrates how prolonged language contact results in grammatical changes and how, in turn, such changes have a profound impact on cognitive, perceptual, and memory abilities.
