Uncovering the nature and workings of the mind is one of the most important outstanding research areas in modern science, and the emergence of cognitive science during the mid-20th century advanced attempts to explain this phenomenon. Arising out of the demise of behaviourist psychology in the 1950s, this new discipline was explicitly multi-disciplinary in its outlook; the far-reaching importance of the subject matter meant that there were a number of different interested parties, and the complexity of the mind could only be successfully tackled by drawing upon ideas and expertise from a number of different disciplines. Linguistics has always been a core part of this enterprise (Miller, 2003).
