Prediction during language processing: Beyond activation

Abstract: Prediction during language processing has been extensively studied over the past decades, however, the specific mechanisms involved are under ongoing debate. In this talk I will focus on a suggested distinction between two qualitatively distinct prediction processes, pre-activation and pre-updating, presenting experiments aimed to examine key aspects of these processes.



Identifying a code-switch: exploring methods for studying the use of prosodic and phonetic cues


Bilingual Code-switching: Exploring Variation in Comprehension Costs

Abstract: Bilinguals experience costs during comprehension when there is a switch between languages—taking longer to process a “code-switch” than single-language input. However, the magnitude of these comprehension costs varies. In this talk, I present data from a study that attempts to explain variation in code-switch comprehension costs.

In this week's meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language (CNL) Lab, Hanna Muller (LING) will be leading a discussion on what is meant by "shallow processing".
