Meeting Description

The impetus for this workshop, borrowing from a recent review by Yang in TICS
(2004), is that 'Recent demonstrations of statistical learning in infants have
reinvigorated the innateness versus learning debate in language acquisition,'
particularly regarding syntax. We aim to reexamine this issue in a single forum
from the computational, cognitive, and formal linguistics perspectives. Our
intent is to examine recent applications of statistical learning theory to
language acquisition.
