Meeting Description:

Utterance Interpretation and Cognitive Models 3

The third edition of the Brussels conference on Utterance Interpretation and Cognitive Models will take place on February 5-7, 2010, under the auspices of the Belgische Kring voor Linguïstiek / Cercle Belge de Linguistique.

The first edition addressed the issue of the semantics/pragmatics interface from a cognitive perspective and drew essentially on the work of semanticists, pragmaticists and philosophers of language. The second broadened the perspective by inviting the views of scholars from the related subfields of syntax, cognitive linguistics and evolutionary linguistics. For this third edition, the focus will be on the developmental and cognitive determinants of utterance interpretation. On the one hand, the ontogenetic development of our ability to interpret linguistic utterances provides invaluable insights into adult cognition; on the other, the methods of cognitive psychology, with their emphasis on experimental inquiry and empirical results raise crucial epistemological questions for the progress of research in the field. The focus of this third edition is fully in keeping with our continued ambition to reach across disciplinary boundaries and bring together researchers who, though belonging to different schools or traditions, all take a view of interpretation that is informed by cognitive concerns and share the assumption that the ultimate test for any theory of utterance interpretation is its psychological plausibility.
