Title: Cue confluences, and a typology of learning

Abstract:

In this talk I will discuss some recent experimental work on interactions between multiple cues in word learning, in the broader context of a typology of learning. The typology of learning is a programmatic attempt to capture important distinctions in theories of knowledge acquisition in general; specially nativist and empiricist ideas. The experimental work is primarily geared towards demonstrating parts of the typology that are nativist, empirically.Papers:
