Sharpening Ockham’s Razor
Cutler, A. and Norris, D.
Behavioural and Brain Sciences, 1999,22,1, 40-41
Year of publication:
Language production and comprehension are intimately inter-related; and models of production and comprehension should, we argue, be constrained by common architectural guidelines. The target article adopts as guiding principle Occam's razor: the best model of production is the simplest one. We recommend adoption of the same principle in comprehension, with consequent simplification of some well-known types of model.
