The Effects of Feature-Label-Order and their Implications for Symbolic Learning” has just been published in Cognitive Science, along with “Computing Machinery and Understanding.”  These articles suggest that language can best be understood and modeled as a predictive process.  We recommend reading the Reply first, before delving into the FLO-Effects paper.  You might also be interested to read the popular send-ups of this research : BigThink cited “The Mind is a Search Engine” as an Idea of the Day, and Scientific American Mind ran an article explaining “Why Johnny Can’t Name His Colors.”

Keywords: language, prediction, processing, cognitive modeling, concepts, categories, time, reference.
