Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course focuses on how words are represented and processed in the mind. Traditionally, this field has been known as - the mental lexicon - and has served as the meeting ground for linguists, psychologists and neurologists interested in the fundamental nature of language ability. More recent developments have underlined the practical implications of this branch of psycholinguistics as well as the role that mental lexicon research plays in bridging research on language and cognition. This course will provide an overview of the known facts and current mysteries concerning the nature of word knowledge in the mind and brain. We will address matters of word meaning, word structure, lexical representation, and the nature of the multilingual lexicon.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Student progress will be evaluated through written examinations and short term paper. Examinations will include a variety of assessment types (e.g., terminology, short essay, short answer). The short term paper will enable the student to explore a topic of his/her choice in greater depth. Students will be free to write term papers in either German or English.
