Ambiguous anaphoric reference in discourse

Project: Research

Project Details


This project will explore the mechanisms involved in the brain’s processing and construction of interpretations of anaphoric reference in context. This is a central, although still not fully understood piece in our understanding of how humans build complex interpretations from linguistic input. By investigating how anaphoric reference in Swedish is processed we try to get a better understanding of how the cognitive processes involved in establishing reference unfold in real time and get important insights into the mental structure of language.
