Moderator: Dušica Filipović Đurđević
For more than a century the research of cognitive bases of language function has been providing both new insights and new questions on the way human language is processed, produced or acquired. During this time, language function has been investigated by applying various approaches and various techniques. In this symposium, we will try to illustrate this variety by presenting latest insights from several different angles. We will present state-of-the-art behavioural techniques and findings about word recognition in control population of adult speakers and discuss latest proposals on modelling some of these findings. We will also look at some developmental issues by presenting some of the latest language acquisition research and discuss language processing in clinical population of speakers with Down syndrome, Williams syndrome and Autism.
