Languages are learned and used in social interaction. Therefore, social factors are likely to play a role in the way that languages are learned and processed, which in turn, influences the form that languages take. Indeed, research has shown that information is processed and represented differently depending on the social context. Similarly, recent research on language evolution has started exploring the relationship between linguistic properties and the social setting in which languages have evolved. Surprisingly, however, these two lines of research do not link to each other. The goal of this workshop is to try to bridge the gap between these lines of research and see how they can inform each other.
