Meeting Description: 

Building Meaning from Language: a conference sponsored by Tufts University,
Department of Psychology, and the American Psychological Association.

Dates: Thurs, June 14 (evening) - Sat, June 16, 2007
Location: Tufts University, nr. Boston, MA 

Speakers from several fields including Cognitive
Psychology, Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, Philosophy, Computational
Modeling, and Cognitive Neuroscience, will discuss fundamental questions of
how we combine words to construct the meaning of sentences, how we combine
sentences together into connected discourse, how we make use of our prior
perceptual experience and knowledge, how we distinguish between what is
functionally relevant and irrelevant in action, how we represent and
generate constructs such as time, space and causation, and how we integrate
language with our non-verbal world.
