Collaborative Research Centre 1287 - Limits of Variability in Language: Cognitive, Computational, and Grammatical Aspects

(In)Variability in prosodic cues and their incremental use in perception, production, and interaction

PI(s): Prof. Dr. Isabell Wartenburger & Prof. Dr. Outi Tuomainen & Dr. Sandra Hanne

Prosody is central to successful communication. This project focuses on, first, the facilitative role and predictive function of prosody for language processing in individuals with aphasia and investigates whether and how their sentence comprehension abilities benefit from prosodic cues. Second, we strive to predict variability in prosodic cue production from variability in using prosodic cues in perception in unimpaired individuals. Third, we will investigate the sources and limits of variability in naturalistic interactive settings in younger and elderly unimpaired individuals. Overall, our project will contribute to a better understanding of the function of prosody and its representation in the linguistic system.
