Computational Psycholinguistics of Listening and Speaking Lab

At the University of California, Santa Barbara

The CPLS Lab brings together a diverse array of scholars, united in three core beliefs: first, that a comprehensive picture of language requires attention to the cognitive, social, and communicative-functional contexts in which it is used; second, that there are strong interactions between the processes of language learning, change, production, and perception; and third, that computational, experimental, and corpus-based methods offer indispensable perspectives on these contexts and processes, both independently and in combination with each other. Through strong collaborative efforts, we are building a better understanding of how language works in the minds, bodies, and communities of its users.
