The Research Group OPUS/NCN working at the Center for Experimental Research on Natural Language at the University of Wroclaw in Poland (
( is pleased to announce that the international conference on

Psycholinguistic investigations into number and quantification in natural language

will be held at the University of Wroclaw in August 29-30, 2016.

Meeting description

The overarching goal of this international conference is to create a forum for discussion for scholars interested in various aspects of the processing number and quantification in natural languages, in particular related to the following research questions:

(i) number interpretation of nouns and verbs based on morphology, context and lexical semantics,

(ii) the interpretation of imperfective aspect with a special focus on the composition of its iterative (plural) and progressive (single-event) readings,

(iii) the mental representation of lexical properties of quantifier terms.
We are mainly interested in experimental research but studies aiming at empirical verification of theoretical models will also be taken into consideration.

Confirmed speakers (in alphabetical order):

Oliver Bott (University of Tübingen)
Judith Degen (Stanford University)
Silvia P. Gennari (University of York)
Yosef Grodzinsky (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Alexis Wellwood (Northwestern University)
Ming Xiang (University of Chicago)
