About this Research Topic
Network Science—an emerging field drawing from Computer Science, Physics, Sociology, Mathematics and a number of other disciplines—uses networks to model complex systems. Although network science has primarily been used to model social, biological, and technological systems, this approach has recently been used to model complex cognitive systems, providing novel insights into several domains of cognition. The papers collected in the present Research Topic examine the insights that network science has brought to the study of language and language processing. These studies cover many levels of processing (e.g., phonology, semantics, syntax), and different language processes (e.g., perception, production, acquisition).
