|Full Title:||Workshop: From Sentence to Text and Back Again|
|Start Date:||25-Sep-2014 - 27-Sep-2014|

|Meeting Description:||Research Focus:
We want to look at and discuss specific factors for how text-level and sentence-level interpretation influence each other. During the workshop we aim to refine our ideas of how text interpretation proceeds, and we are interested in whether there is evidence for an incremental or more dynamic text interpretation process. We want to investigate whether this might be dependent on specific language phenomena (especially context-dependent phenomena) or on specific text types (e.g., fictional vs. non-fictional texts) or both.
