Leipzig Lectures on Language
We are delighted to announce the Leipzig Lectures on Language 2021—a novel series of online talks on combinatorics in language, where visions in theoretical and experimental linguistics will be discussed in combination with cutting-edge empirical methods. The term combinatorics is used here as a cover term for the many definitions of combinatorial processes in the psycho- and neurolinguistics literature including compositionality, combination, composition, binding, merge, blending, etc.
The series aims to highlight the directions into which junior scholars are currently moving forward.
