Maria Piñango gives plenary talk
Maria Piñango gave a plenary talk at the conference “The building blocks of information transfer in language processing” (October 18-19) hosted at the University of Zagreb. In her talk “A possible linguistically motivated processing infrastructure for an Information transfer system” Piñango discussed “information transfer” in the context of linguistically-driven conceptual composition. To this end, she focused on lexical and pragmatic metonymy, phenomena that involve meaning composition yet lack morphophonological support. Discussion involved the lexico-conceptual analysis of the phenomena, and the implications of its developmental and neuro-cognitve manifestations.
