Human natural languages are complex adaptive systems, forever emergent and adapting to the needs of their communities. This insight is currently revolutionizing many branches of linguistics and this summer school feels the pulse of these exciting developments. It brings together typologists and historical linguists studying language variation and the emergence of new grammatical structure, evolutionary linguists modeling the origins and evolution of language, cognitive linguists investigating the cognitive foundations of language usage and learning, complex systems researchers using methods from statistical physics to study the semiotic dynamics of evolving languages, and computational linguists and AI researchers carrying out experiments to achieve open-ended communication with autonomous robots.
