Language, Mind, and Brain: A Summary
In Chapter I I discussed the groundbreaking work of Berlin and Kay, and of Rosch. My concern in that chapter was primarily, though not exclusively, with linguistic regularities. In Chapter II I dealt with psychophysical opponent colours theory-with the opponent channels space. The concern was primarily, though not exclusively, with psychological regularities. In the last chapter, Chapter III, I looked at the neurophysiology of colour vision—of opponency, in particular. The interest there, though again it was not exclusive, was physiological. These three domains—the linguistic, the psychological, and the physiological—provide a rough taxonomy of the work we have discussed. We should note, however, that much of the work we have dealt with overlaps, straddles, or is linked to work in the other domains. Consider the following attempt to classify the various regularities and generalizations.
