Pre-Conference Workshop


"Eye Tracking in Linguistic Research"

Theres Grüter (University of Hawai'i)

 

WHEN: Wednesday, 23rd May 2018, 15.00 - 18.00 hrs

WHERE: BI 80.301 (Bienroder Weg 80, 3rd floor)




What can eye gaze tell us about language processing? In this workshop, we will critically examine the assumptions that underlie the use of eye-tracking in language research. We will focus specifically on the Visual World Paradigm (VWP), in which children and adults view visual arrays while listening to spoken language. A key advantage of this paradigm lies in its low task demands, making it particularly attractive for research with a wide variety of child and adult populations. We will discuss what kinds of questions about bilingual and L2 processing this paradigm can help us address, as well as what questions it is not suited to address. We will look at what it takes to conduct a VWP experiment, including the creation of visual and auditory materials, and touch on some of the issues that need to be considered in the analysis and interpretation of data from a VWP experiment.


This pre-conference workshop will be particularly interesting for graduate and doctoral students.
