View All Workshops
When: 04-21-2018 (Saturday) 09:00AM to 03:30AM

Theories of language function depend on an understanding of semiotics, pragmatics, and deep semantics. This workshop will highlight brain research that supports these three areas of language function and the literature behind such theories. Partici-pants will have the opportunity to dig deeper into the relationship between the brain and language function

Key Concepts: Semiotics, semantics, pragmatics, neuroscience of language, language function
Learner Objectives: 1. Explain the basic tenets of pragmatics as a shared referential experience; 2. Explain how the language function analysis mirrors deep semantics; and 3. Explain the difference between surface semantics and deep semantics.
