Dynamical system modelling of articulator movement.

Of course, words aren’t magic. Neither are sextants, compasses, maps, slide rules and all the other paraphenelia which have accreted around the basic biological brains of homo sapiens. In the case of these other tools and ...
Leadership and Influence: The Manager as Coach, Nanny and Artificial DNA
(Jossey-Bass: San Francisco, 1999)
Markets, companies and various forms of business organizations may all (we have argued) be usefully viewed through the lens of CAS -- the theory of complex adaptive systems. In this chapter, I address one fundamental issue ...

(John Benjamins Publishing, 1996)
Language, according to Jackendoff (How Language Helps us Think -- this issue), is more than just an instrument of communication and cultural transmission. It is also a tool which helps us to think. It does so, he suggests, ...
