The Architecture of the Mental Lexicon in Language Comprehension

  • 2000-2003; funded by TransCoop Programme of German-American Council and Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation;
  • PIs: H. Wiese and Maria M. Piñango, Yale University

In this project, we conducted a cross-linguistic investigation (German, English, Spanish, Persian) on the representation of lexical elements in language processing, which yielded psycholinguistic evidence on the access to grammatical-semantic features distinct from general-conceptual and syntactic features.
