Organized by the Research Institute for Language and Speech (OTS)
 on the occasion of its 5th anniversary
 28-30 October 1993

The human language faculty shows a remarkable robustness with respect
to incomplete information. Many possible features are not realized in the
signal of a normal linguistic utterance; and on the meaning side too, the
interpretation is highly underdetermined by the expression itself. Yet, in
the normal case, understanding is not in any way hampered by this. It
may well be that the availability of knowledge from other cognitive
domains contributes to the overall success, or perhaps this robustness is
caused by the modular structure of the linguistic system itself. Information
that disappears from one module would be compensated for via another
module. The central question of this conference will be how this
robustness of the language system can be explained, focusing in particular
on the role of non-linguistic information and higher order redundancy.

 Topics include:
Aphasia, Contextual vs Grammatical Conditions on Interpretation,
Language Acquisition, Language Processing, Overdetermination and
underspecification in phonology, Partial information in Computational
Linguistics, Phonetic Underspecification, Sign Language.
