Meeting Description: This special session takes as its starting point the organization of language in the brain through the study of developmental disorders, aphasia and neuro-typical language acquisition. It is designed to evaluate and extend our understanding of how language disorders impact language production and comprehension, as well as individuals’ non-verbal executive functions, and what this means for theories of language processing and its interaction with non-verbal cognition.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together current research on the processing systems of individuals with an acquired or a developmental disorder in order to revisit questions about the architecture of the language system and its relationship to other aspects of cognitive skills which interact with language. Experimental research is welcome on any topic of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, as well as on non-verbal cognitive control functions. Although the focus of the event is impaired language, research on typical monolingual or bilingual language development will also be considered.
