Major pioneers in this area and whose work has been the foundation of much research in cognitive psychology are among Jean Piaget’s (1926) and Lev Vygotksy’s (1978). The scientific study of cognition has increased greatly since its beginnings in the early 1950. The “linearity problem” refers to the difficulties for speech perception produced by co-articulation.

Criticizes Evolutionary Psychology's insistence on the domain-specificity of cognitive mechanisms, arguing that a domain-general architecture that uses domain-specific information would be equally good.

Marslen-Wilson (1990) assumed that the word-initial cohort may contain words having similar initial phonemes, rather than being limited only to words having the initial phoneme of the presented word.

Several other common physical devices operate in a similar manner and are used as analogies for the valve model. For example, contemporary theoretical approaches to sentence processing are discussed in detail in Chapters 5 and 7. • Graesser, A.
