The Mental Lexicon
December 10, 2009
Room H435
Center for Languages and Literature
Lund University


This interdisciplinary symposium brings together researchers from linguistics, cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, and computer science. The symposium will focus on topics related to the modelling of the lexicon and the mental reality behind the structure and processing of word forms and their meaning.
Both theoretical aspects related to the organization of the mental lexicon as well as work on more experimental aspects of the structure of the mental lexicon and the processing of words will be treated.

Organizing committee: Merle Horne, Frida Mårtensson, Mikael Roll

The conference is supported by the Birgit Rausing Language Program
