This tea will explore the possibilities of instigating, extending and enriching cross-College and within-College collaborative research at our university into human language and the cognition underlying it – encompassing a wide range of research activities, both theoretical and applied. The envisaged collaborations would build in part on research on artificial intelligence and related matters in Computer Science and EECE , but would also draw on a diverse range of other disciplines including philosophy, psychology, cognitive linguistics, applied linguistics (which includes, for example, language teaching), and education.

Research of the type envisaged covers not only spoken and written language but also sign language, gesture and interaction with diagrammatic and otherwise graphical forms of communication.

While many people in EPS may not have language as their primary research interest(!), they may nevertheless be interested in the general issue raised of (massively) cross-College interaction. Human language is a research theme that runs across most if not all Colleges in the university. There may also be links with other parts of EPS that have not yet occurred to me.

This talk is part of the EPS - College Research Teas series.
