ALPS -- interActive Language Processing Lab at Stanford
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I'm a new professor in the Linguistics department at Stanford and am starting a new lab -- the ALPS lab -- that does research in the field of computational psycholinguistics. Specifically, we study how speakers and listeners create meaning in interaction. For instance, as speakers we don't encode everything we mean in what we say. (I might say "It's cold" to get you to close the window, without saying "Close the window"). How do we choose what to say? As listeners, we need to do the best we can from speakers' underspecified utterances and draw the right kinds of inferences about what they actually mean. (Hm, if she says she's cold and I just opened the window, maybe that means she wants me to close it.) Speakers' choice of expression and listeners' resulting inferences are subject to very systematic conversational principles that we investigate both by running experiments with adult subjects and by building computational models of the process.
As a side note, the acronym for the lab is also inspired by the Swiss mountains. (I'm Swiss.)
I chose "Education" from the menu below, but this is really a research lab.
