Speaker information

Dr Jenni Rodd (UCL Psychology and Language Sciences)

If you look up just about any word in a dictionary you will usually see a long list of possible definitions, yet it takes no apparent effort to figure out the intended definition of a word when it is used in everyday life. Dr Jenni Rodd will talk about the cognitive mechanisms that allow people to make rapid ‘best guesses’ about a word’s meaning.
