Patterns of Imagery in Language
About the need to integrate research approaches to the language faculty phenomenon
Jolanta Mazurkiewicz-Sokołowska University of Szczecin
This paper attempts to show that the integration of various research approaches to language faculty is possible. To prove this, I shall present a complex definition of the language faculty and a three-level integrative model which combines the abstract universal information with the specific one derived from cognitive processing. As a result, a coherent framework for the uniform description of the phenomenon of the language faculty in all its manifestations shall be formulated. To support the accuracy and adequacy of the suggested model and the necessity to integrate various approaches, I provide empirical data from language perception and production.
