Project SFB 833 Projekt B1 – Incrementality and globality in semantic processing

Basic data

Acronym:
SFB 833 Projekt B1
Title:
Incrementality and globality in semantic processing
Duration:
01/07/2009 to 30/06/2021
Abstract / short description:
The project investigates the incremental composition of meaning. More specifically, we investigate context dependency and crosslinguistic variation as two potential triggers of variability in semantic processing strategies. Our empirical focus is the domain restriction of nominal and temporal quantifiers as well as related parameters of crosslinguistic variation. The dependent variables in our studies are electrophysiological and behavioral measures. The languages under investigation include German, English, Russian, Turkish and Samoan. Our results will inform a theory of the adaptivity and dynamics of on-line sentence comprehension.
