Dr Jelena Mirkovic will present the next LuCiD seminar on learning grammar from sound and meaning. The seminar will take place from 12.00-13.30 on Tuesday 14th April at the University of Liverpool and is open to anyone wishing to attend.
The psychological and neural mechanisms underlying grammar learning have been a topic of a long-standing debate between abstract (rule-based) and statistical learning approaches to language processing. In this talk I will present a computational model and several behavioural studies exploring the learning of grammatical gender as a test case. The studies will assess the extent to which grammar learning relies on domain-general neural mechanisms underpinning learning and memory in both linguistic and non-linguistic domains.
Where: LT3, Rendall Building University of Liverpool
When: 12.00-13.30, Tuesday 14th April
