The workshop will address questions such as: how can formal semantics be reconciled with or imported into broader theories of cognition? How can linguistic semantics be imported into all-purpose cognitive models? How can research on language processing and cognitive modeling inform theoretical work in semantics?

This workshop is funded by a 2015-2016 Tanya Honig Graduate Research Initiative Grant
