Ane will give the talk in English.
In this talk Ane will present her PhD project about linguistic prediction. She will focus on a one of the sub-projects about linguistic and non-linguistic prediction. Linguistic prediction concerns pre-activation of linguistic input before it has been uttered, for example upon hearing “He is eating a…” we anticipate something edible. Non-linguistic prediction involves pre-activation of a movement before somebody has performed the movement. For instance, we anticipate that you will bring a cup to your mouth already when you are reaching for the cup. In this presentation Ane will talk about how she is planning to investigate possible correlations between linguistic and non-linguistic prediction, and whether there is a correlation between language abilities and linguistic prediction.
