Abstract
I am pleased to introduce this collection of scholarly articles focused on various issues concerning language and cognition. This edition is special in light of the fact that it bears on one of most important questions regarding the interface problems explored with respect to underlying knowledge as well as real-time interpretations. In particular, the papers published here address the theme of how speakers and hearers of various languages such as Cayuga, English, Japanese, and Korean interpret and structure morphological forms and categories in the real-time and underlying mechanisms, including bound morphemes associated with sub-syllabic units, verb modals, gender features, and numerical classifiers, on one hand, and free morphemes such as nouns and verbs, on the other.
