Workshop “Expectations in Language Learning”

October 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

To celebrate the completion of Dorothee Hoppe’s PhD project “Linear order in language – an error-driven learning account” we hold a small workshop to discuss the application of simple error-driven learning models to phenomena in language learning. Error-driven learning models (e.g., as used by Widrow & Hoff, 1960, and Rescorla & Wagner, 1972) simulate how humans learn to form expectations about changes in the environment in a given context via a simple, cognitively plausible error-correcting mechanism. These models have especially proven useful for investigating factors that influence implicit learning, e.g., of language, in context.
