Interplay between language and visual information in communication

Project: Research

Layman's description

The overriding goal is to investigate how speakers integrate language and pictures in communication. The goal of the project is to both broaden the current psycholinguistic discussion (integrating neglected areas from conversational analysis) and to expand on the experimental evidence in favour of more naturalistic set-ups.

The project focuses on the following questions: Do pictures contribute to a better common ground and to a ”meeting of minds”? Do they activate concepts, make production/perception easier? Can partners better predict/simulate the others mind?
