Netlang, Complex Networks and Language is a scientific enterprise developed at the edge of physics, linguistics and cognitive science. It is a completely new way to approach the language capacity and its development in both typical and atypical conditions.
The aim of this project is to develop better and more precise tools for linguistic analyses. To this end, a new technique has been imported from physics to the study of language, and from linguistics to cognitive science: the analysis of the Pattern of Linguistic Complexity (PLC).
After proving the usefulness of syntactic complex networks, now the project has made a step further into the realm of language impairment. The idea is to help neurologists, psychiatrists and neuropediatrists in their effort to attend people showing some kind of linguistic impairment.
