Connecting form and meaning: A learning approach to lexical representation and processing

Abstract / short description:
NDL-Humboldt is a project funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) that investigates language processing from the perspective of Naive Discrimination Learning.

Naive discrimination learning is a computational modeling approach that exploits the rich co-occurrence information in language form to discriminate between different meanings. This project focuses on lexical processing in silent reading, reading aloud, in listening, and in speech production, but also branches out to language acquisition, bilingualism, syntax, and language change.
