LING 390
Andrea Nicole Santi Isabelle Deschamps

Nov 23 - Compositionality - we build our structure as we go - back to marxisms - modify semantics without modifying syntax: how can we do this? - violation paradigm: present a word that does not fid semantically (he spread the warm bread with socks) - there's an N400 ERP at socks, but not if it's replaced by butter - remember: this is a negative deflection at 300-350 ms post stimulus, which peaks at 400 - negative is represented with upwards -> remember this - there's a modulation for the effect depending on how predictible the word is - N400 is not affected by syntactic violations - Broca's and Wernicke's aphasiacs show robust N400 effects - not dependent on these areas, per se, but dependent on the left temporal lobe (as per patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy) - no name for MEG component generated yet (N400 = ERP anomaly contrast) - dose the N400 really represent what they say it does? - integration view vs. lexical view - lexical: it may not be easy to access the words, it really doesn't have to do
