Seminar in Psycholinguistics LIN6932


Spring 2019

Description and Goals

Aims of this course:

  • Adaptation in Language Processing. How do speakers unconsciously influence each other during dialogue and what does this mean for language processing? How do language users get used to the language variety around them, and what does this mean for first and second language learning? In this seminar we’ll discuss some classic and recent literature on the above topics. We’ll cover priming, alignment, prediction, and adaptation and the psycholinguistic models proposed to account for these phenomena.
