All Tied in Knots
David J. Lobina
Computer Science
24 March 2012
TLDR
A proposal put forward by Camps & Uriagereka (2006; CU BEA) regarding the study of the evolution of language is critique, intending to cast doubt on the connection they draw between the computational properties of the language faculty and those involved in the conceptualization of a knot. Expand

Recursion and the competence/performance distinction in AGL tasks
David J. Lobina
Computer Science
4 April 2011
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that the current focus of the artificial grammar learning literature on recursion blurs the different levels, resulting in three main corollaries: the literature cannot tell us anything about the first level, the explanation for the role of recursion therein lies elsewhere, and much cannot in fact be known about the neural basis of recursions.

Recursion and Cognitive Science: Data Structures and Mechanisms
J. E. García-Albea, David J. Lobina
Computer Science
2009
TLDR
The origin and application of Recursion in the formal sciences is described, followed by a critical analysis of the adoption and adaptation of this notion in cognitive science, with a focus on linguistics and psychology. Expand

“A Running Back” and Forth: A Review of Recursion and Human Language
David J. Lobina
Computer Science
27 June 2011
TLDR
Contrary to a(n apparently) widespread belief, it is simply not true that recursive structures in languages “suggest recursive mechanisms in the grammar” (at least not in the sense that is usually intended in the literature — see infra). Expand

Disentangling perceptual and psycholinguistic factors in syntactic processing: Tone monitoring via ERPs
David J. Lobina, J. Demestre, J. E. García-Albea
Psychology, MedicineBehavior research methods
1 June 2018
TLDR
The overall results suggest that much care needs to be employed in designing click-detection tasks if structural effects are sought, and some of the now-classic data need to be reconsidered. Expand

Knots, Language, and Computation: More Bermuda than Love
David J. Lobina, M. Brenchley
Philosophy
19 June 2012
[T]he greater part of what is said and written upon it is mere windy talk, the assertion of subjective views which commend themselves to no mind save the one that produces them, and which are apt to… Expand

David J. Lobina
Sociology
1 October 2012
Abstract One perspective in contemporary linguistic theory defends the idea that the language faculty may result from the combinations of diverse systems and principles. As a case study, I critique a… Expand
