This course concentrates on experimental approaches to the study of meaning in natural language, drawing on tools from formal semantics, pragmatics, psychology and neuroscience. Special attention will be given to how sentence meanings are constructed in real time, touching on topics including partial semantic representations, presuppositions, implicatures, quantifier scope, and reference resolution. Some aspects of experimental design and inferential statistics will be covered along the way.
