    Phrases exhibit more social, cognitive, affective or emtional and sensory or..

    Here is the full sentence:" Phrases exhibit more social, cognitive, affective, or emotional, and sensory or perceptional processes. " Please explain "cognitive, affective, emotional and sensory or perceptional" to me. Those abstract words are difficult for me to understand though I looked for the dictionary. If possible, could you please give me some simple examples for each one word to elaborate for me?

    Thanks,

    Please quote your source. That sentence is meaningless to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What do you mean by quote the source? It is a sentence from a paper. Do you want the title of the paper? The paper will be meaningless to you again, I guess. I just need the help with the very basic and simple explanations of those abstract words only, if possible.

    The further context necessary would be at least the other part of the comparative. Phrases exhibit more processes than what?
    Also, if they give a reason why phrases exhibit more processes than X, that might help too. As it is, it's not a comprehensible sentence, so explaining those other words in context is impossible, and we could only give you dictionary definitions, which you already have.
    As far as the source goes, it would be useful to know if it was written by a non-native speaker or a native academic in a social science. In the latter case, it may be impenetrable.
