Talking and timing - Speaker: Zenzi Griffin

Talking and timing

Professor Zenzi M. Griffin
The University of Texas at Austin

People do not retrieve all of the words they will use in an utterance before beginning to speak. At the same time, they do not appear to blurt out each word as it is prepared. A wealth of experimental and observational data testify to this. But then how do speakers coordinate the preparation and articulation of words over time? In this talk, I will discuss eye-tracking and other experiments from my lab on the time course of language production.
