The Experiential Simulation View of Language Comprehension

How is Sentence Meaning Composed?

We focus on the ‘experiential simulations view of comprehension’. Our previous research showed that non-linguistic memory traces reflecting the comprehender’s experiences are automatically activated during word processing, and that comprehenders build simulations beyond the word level. No definite evidence was found for the assumption that simulations are functionally relevant for comprehension. In Phase III, we will continue investigating simulation processes at the sentence level, focusing particularly on the question regarding incrementality. We will also investigate the functional relevance of simulations for the processing of expressions requiring substantial composition processes, as well as for children’s language processing.
