Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is devoted to shed light on the complexity of human language and cognition from a transdisciplinary perspective. Much recent progress on the complexity of human language and cognition from network and information theory is scattered in the literature of physics, cognitive science, neurology, biology, quantitative linguistics...It is time to bring together efforts from different areas in a more coherent environment to show that new insights into different areas of human language and cognition can originate from common theoretical approaches.

There is no a priori constraint on the aspect of human language or cognition addressed. There is no constraint either on the background of the contribution: physics, cognitive science, neurology, biology, quantitative linguistics... The only condition is that the insight comes from a theoretical discipline such as information theory or network theory. Theoretical insights from other theoretical disciplines might be considered.
