Abstract:

In acquiring language, it is well known that learners attend to the distribution of linguistic structures in their environment. However, since any particular set of data is consistent with many possible distributional descriptions, it is critical to examine what types of information in the speech stream learners attend to. I will present recent work from my lab that examines the acquisition of sound structure: constraints on sequences of sounds (phonotactics) and the grouping of sounds into larger units (subsyllabic structure). The results suggest that leaners attend to distributions at relatively abstract levels of description: over syllable types, not tokens; and over "underlying" forms that factor out the influence of unrelated linguistic patterns.

Abstract:

A central and influential idea among researchers of language is that our language faculty is organized according to Fregean compositionality, which implies that the meaning of an utterances is a function of the meaning of its parts and of the syntactic rules by which these parts are combined. The implication of this idea is that beyond word recognition, language interpretation takes place in a two-step fashion. First, the meaning of a sentence is computed. In a second step the sentence meaning is integrated with information from prior discourse, with world knowledge, with information about the speaker, and with semantic information from extralinguistic domains such as co-speech gestures or the visual world. FMRI results and results from recordings of event related brain potentials will be presented that are inconsistent with this classical Fregean model of language intepretation. Our data support a model in which knowledge about the context and the world, knowledge about concomitant information from other modalities, and knowledge about the speaker are brought to bear immediately, by the same fast-acting brain system that combines the meanings of individual words into a message-level representation. The Memory, Unification and Control (MUC) model of language accounts for these data. Resting state connectivity data, and results from Psycho-Physiological Interactions will be discussed, suggesting a division of labour between temporal and inferior frontal cortex. These results indicate that Broca’s area and adjacent cortex play an important role in semantic and syntactic unification operations. I will also discuss fMRI results that indicate the insufficiency of the Mirror Neuron Hypothesis to explain language understanding. Instead I will sketch a picture of language processing from an embrained perspective.
