The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

NOTE: Everything linked here is now out of date.  I have since continued my study and have now figured out the root cause of all the problems I see.  I am in the process of writing it up to hopefully get some academic attention, for this is purely an academic problem and failure... (Albeit for probably ~2500 years.)  (And even if it's also affecting much more than just language.)

 

A STUDY OF GAMES AS A MATTER OF COGNITIVE* LINGUISTICS

*Someone on linkedin (supposedly an 'expert' (a teacher I think) based in Italy) tried to convince me that the type of study I'm doing is consistent with being 'cognitive' linguistics - which is, of course, completely wrong.  My study is a matter of linguistics at its most fundamental, in relation to both English and language as a whole.

I'm going to have each post linked to and from here in order to keep everything consistent for ease of use.
