AHRC Research Network (2014-2016)

The Centre for Cognition Research and the Philosophy Department at Reading University will host a major AHRC funded international network (c. £27,000 over two years) between the University of Reading and Peking University, China, on the topic of ‘Pervasive context-sensitivity in natural language’. The project will look at the extent of context-sensitivity in natural language, asking what theoretical models are best suited to accommodating  context-sensitivity, and whether there are any important cross-linguistic differences in linguistic context-sensitivity. The project will also explore the effect of  linguistic context-sensitivity on the understanding of those with cognitive impairments, and the relationship between artificial linguistic modelling and context-sensitivity. Peking University was ranked #1 in the 2014 THES ranking of universities in BRICS and Emerging Economies (http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/world-university-rankings/2014/brics-and-emerging-economies).
