October 28th: Talk by Martin Pickering
.

Friday October 28th at 12.00 at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in room  55.309.

Prof. Martin Pickering from the University of Edinburgh ( web )

The title of his talk is: "An integrated theory of language production and comprehension"

We will let you know the title and the abstract  in the next few days.

If you would like to have a chat with the speaker, you can contact the Host (Albert Costa).

Abstract:

Current accounts of language processing treat production and comprehension as quite distinct. Instead, I propose that producing and understanding are tightly interwoven, and this interweaving underlies people’s ability to predict themselves and each other. Based on accounts of action, social perception, and joint action in which action and perception are interwoven to support prediction, I develop analogous accounts of production, comprehension and interactive language. Specifically, I propose that people predict their own utterances at different levels of representation (semantics, syntax, and phonology), and that they covertly imitate and predict their partner’s utterances. The second part of my talk then reports experimental work consistent with this account in which pairs of participants perform a joint picture-naming task, in which participants' utterances are affected by their prediction of their partner's subsequence utterance.

Abstract:

Bilinguals who are fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and English often produce code-blends (simultaneous articulation of a sign and a word) during language mixing. I will report two picture-naming studies that examine the cognitive mechanisms underlying code-blend production. Experiment 1 revealed that code-blending was either not costly or facilitated access to ASL (of low-frequency signs).  However, code-blending delayed English production as a part of a neurocognitive pressure to synchronize vocal and manual articulators. Bimodal bilinguals’ ability to produce code-blends without any cost to ASL implies that the language system either has, or can develop, a mechanism for switching off competition to allow simultaneous production of close competitors. Experiment 2 investigated whether there is a cost for switching between speaking and code-blending, between signing and code-blending (both unique to bimodal bilinguals) or for switching between speaking and signing. Switch-costs were found for all conditions (likely due to task switch-costs), except when bimodal bilinguals switched from speaking to signing; in this case, a switch advantage was observed for ASL. These results suggest that language output must be selected for all trials (one language cannot just be left “on”) and that translation equivalents can facilitate lexical retrieval in a switching paradigm when the two languages do not compete at a phonological level.

Abstract:

The core component of expert reading is the fast and accurate perception of single words by the visual system, an ability which results from years of intensive learning. We propose an integrated view of the contributions of the ventral and dorsal streams to this process, associating brain imaging in normal subjects, and studies of brain damaged patients. Together, these two sources of data indicate that fluent reading results from a tight collaboration of both pathways. In the left occipito-temporal cortex, the Visual Word Form system allows for the fast, invariant, and parallel encoding of well-formed letters strings. The occipito-parietal pathway makes an important contribution to reading through attention orienting, word selection, and within-word serial decoding under non-optimal reading conditions.
