Temario

Words, whether spoken, written or signed, form a key element in language production and comprehension.

This course provides an introduction into how words are represented and organized in our mental lexicon and how word form and meaning are retrieved during word production and recognition. Furthermore, the course will explore how new word forms and meanings are established in the lexicon and integrated with existing lexical representations. Other topics that will be covered include the time course of lexical processing, the role of storage versus computation, the role of frequency in word processing, and computational models of word recognition and production. Particular attention throughout the course will be given to lexical processing in bilinguals and the interaction between words from different languages in the mental lexicon.

Finally, the role of language modality differences will be explored by examining both auditory and visual word recognition, and also sign production and recognition.
