13 - 17 August 2018, ESSLLI Workshop on Quantity in Language and Thought, Sofia, Bulgaria

Date: 13 - 17 August 2018
Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
Deadline: Tuesday 15 May 2018

Quantifiers are linguistic expressions encoding representations of quantities. Their study has been one of the great success stories in natural language semantics. On the other hand, the study of the mental representation of numerical and other quantitative information has become an active area of research in cognitive science and neuroscience. This workshop provides a venue for continued exploration of the interface between these two domains.

Keynote Speakers: Jakub Dotlačil (Amsterdam), Michael Franke (Tübingen), and Steven Piantadosi (Rochester).

We invite anonymized submission of abstracts of 2 pages on new research on any of the workshop topics.
