    Colloquium

    Speaking, understanding, and grammar
    Friday, April 28, 2017, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
    Wang Center, Lecture Hall 2

    We speak and understand the same language, but it’s generally assumed that language production and comprehension are subserved by separate cognitive systems. So they must presumably draw on a third, task-neutral cognitive system (“grammar”). For this reason, comprehension-production differences are a thorn in the side of anybody who might want to collapse grammar and language processing mechanisms (i.e., me!). In this talk I will explore two linguistic domains from the perspective of comprehension and production.
