Project SFB 833 Projekt B7 – Language Processing and Temporal Cognition

Basic data

Acronym:
SFB 833 Projekt B7
Title:
Language Processing and Temporal Cognition
Duration:
01/07/2009 to 30/06/2021
Abstract / short description:
The project assesses the function of modal representations (mental timeline, situation simulation) during the processing of temporal information (temporal anchoring, situation type, situation duration). Our aim in the third funding period is to identify the linguistic conditions that necessitate the activation of the mental timeline, contrast modal and amodal accounts for the processing of various situation types, and investigate the influence of linguistically expressed situation duration on comprehension. By examining the function of non-linguistic factors in comprehension, the project will contribute to the development of a comprehensive model of semantic processing.
