Abstract

The paper first gives an overview of theories and research directions that have influenced the

formation of the neural theory of language and thought: objectivism, cognitivism, functionalism

(strong AI vs. embodied AI), categorization, embodied cognition, mirror neurons discovery,

Hebbian learning, Spike–Time–Dependent Plasticity. Then, an overview of the key theoretical

assumptions and concepts of neural theory of language and thought is provided: the relationship

between neural theory of language and cognitive linguistics, J. Feldman's simulation semantics,

types of neural networks, and Embodied Construction Grammar. Finally, attention is directed to

metaphor and metaphorical thought in the context of this theory by providing a brief overview

of the basic assumptions of neural theory of metaphor.

 

Key words

Neural Theory of Language, Neural Theory of Metaphor, Artificial Intelligence, Embodied Construction Grammar
