Semantic Disorders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


Semantic knowledge refers to general knowledge about language and the world accumulated over a lifetime of experiences. In linguistics, the term semantics is often applied exclusively to verbal meaning, while in neuroscience, it is more commonly used to refer to verbal and nonverbal aspects of knowledge. The latter definition is adopted in this entry.
