Speakers >>


The presentations in this section will focus on recent research in the sphere of Psycholinguistics. Among the priority topics to be discussed are language, brain and cognition; psycholinguistics and mass media; first and second language acquisition; bilingualism and multilingualism; human communication models and computers; psycholinguistic analysis of literary texts; oral vs. written communication; psycholinguistics of translation and interpreting; language, communication and education; speech comprehension and production.

The aim of the section is to define tasks for today’s Psycholinguistics and to propose solutions and ways to implement them, broadening the scope of application of Psycholinguistic methods and strengthening the ties between Psycholinguistics and other branches of science. Today Psycholinguistics is making great strides forward by stimulating the emergence of the new and enriching the existing methods of research.

Most of the section speakers are current members of the International Society of Applied Psycholinguistics (ISAPL). Their profound knowledge, rich experience as well as theoretical and practical background contribute greatly to the development of Psycholinguistics and to the introduction of innovations into individual, cultural and societal spheres of human activity.

Through multidimensional approaches, Psycholinguistics proves to have a potential of solving problems facing people and mankind in the 21st century.
