Minimalist Semantics and Pre-Linguistic Intelligence
Sasson Margaliot
April 2017
 

This article introduces an approach where the conceptual-intentional(C-I) system is split into two parts: Minimalist Semantics and pre-linguistic intelligence. Minimalist Semantics is a part of the human-specific faculty of language, whereas pre-linguistic intelligence is not. Minimalist Semantics is connected to two interfaces: (a) pre-linguistic intelligence, and (b) narrow syntax. In turn, narrow syntax is also connected to two interfaces: (a) Minimalist Semantics (as a part of C-I), and (b) the sensory-motor system (SM).
