CANCELLED – Linguistics Colloquia: Jesse Harris
May 8, 2020 @ 1:20 pm - 3:00 pm | Humanities 2, Room 259
Jesse Harris (UCLA) – Title TBD
Jesse Harris is an assistant professor at UCLA in the Department of Linguistics, and director of the UCLA Language Processing Lab. His research investigates how language users develop a sufficiently rich linguistic meaning during online comprehension, concentrating in particular on three related areas: (a) the formal semantics of context sensitive expressions, (b) the semantic processing of contextually dependent terms, and (c) the pragmatic and processing defaults engaged when generating a semantic or discourse representation for an utterance or phrase.
About eight times each year, the Linguistics department hosts colloquia by distinguished faculty from around the world.
