The 2021-2022 colloquium series continues on Monday, April 11, with a talk by Zenzi M. Griffin (UT Austin), held via Zoom (with an in-person screening in Dwinelle 370) at 3:10pm. The talk is entitled "Talking and timing: Using eye movements to study language production," and the abstract is as follows:
People do not retrieve all of the words they will use in an utterance before beginning to speak. At the same time, they do not appear to blurt out each word as it is prepared. A wealth of experimental and observational data testify to this. But then how do speakers coordinate the preparation and articulation of words over time? In this talk, I will discuss eye-tracking and other experiments from my lab on the time course of language production.
