PIPP will bring together psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic research which addresses the predictive power of the parser. It is hosted by the Brain and Language project at the University of Iceland, funded by the Icelandic Research Fund 2016-2018. The project investigated the processing of morphological, semantic and prosodic cues in container compounds in Icelandic. We welcome a wide range of experimental research on any language, addressing the processing of cues by the parser.

We invite the submission of abstracts in psycho- and neurolinguistics that address the predictive power of the parser and we encourage submissions relating to a wide range of languages. The parser sorts through a large amount of information to find important cues in the speech stream for building an accurate model of the structures and sounds being produced. But to what degree does the parser use that information to make predictions about upcoming information? Are those predictions probabilistic or categorical? How aggressive is the parser in making predictions? How costly is processing in the environment of previous incorrect predictions? What cues are used in prediction, and how do they interact?

Presentations will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. In addition, there will be poster sessions. Submissions must be received by 11 January 2019. Notifications on acceptance will be sent out in mid February.
