Phoebe and Christian in Edmonton

September 26 at the International Conference on the Mental Lexicon, Phoebe Gaston argues that “Syntactic category facilitates rather than inhibits lexical competition” in a poster with co-authors Ellen Lau and Colin Phillips. Also with a poster are postdoc Christian Brodbeck and NACS professor Jonathan Z. Simon, who argue that "MEG Responses Track Lexical Processing of Continuous Narrative Speech". The conference is in Edmonton, capital city of the prairie province of Alberta, and center of the Canada's oil and gas industry.
