> Abstract for keynote address:
>
> Language is a complex ability comprised of multiple component skills. A
> sizable body of research now suggests that language learning and processing
> could be subserved by statistical learning (SL) abilities ? implicitly
> tracking distributional relations in sequences of events. Languages contain
> many probabilistic regularities (for example, a listener who hears "the"
> can predict that a noun will occur after it), so sensitivity to statistical
> structure in the input can play an important role in mastering language.
>
> The first generation of SL studies provided important proofs of concept'
> that infants and adults can track statistical relations in miniature
> artificial grammars, but the arguably simplified nature of these learning
> scenarios could only offer indirect evidence that the same processes
> underlie the discovery of a natural language. Recently, however, a series
> of new studies have established more robust links between SL abilities and
> language. In addition, this relationship can go both ways, as language
> experience can modify individual preferences for statistical learning,
> potentially affecting subsequent learning. I will provide an overview of
> how corpus analyses, behavioral, and brain imaging methods can be combined
> to further strengthen our understanding of the underpinnings of statistical
> language learning.
