Interests

I'm curious about how much of our mental activity — including our perceptual experiences — we manage to express in language; how much one's physical location could affect not only what one can know, but what one can think.  I'm also exploring whether justice can be done to the richness of our interactions with young children (and adults who never learn to speak) while still thinking of linguistic content as a good model for mental content.
