SMART Cognitive Science Workshop

This workshop focuses explicitly on the implications of the knowledge of code-switching/mixing (i.e., the ability to mix more than one language in a sentence or an utterance) for the theory of language, acquisition, and change. If one makes the reasonable assumption that code-switching/mixing is at worse not detrimental to cognition, and at best beneficial to executive functions, then it seems the human brain evolved to cope with cognitive processes deployed in code- switching/mixing. This view raises a number of questions with regard to the theory of language and cognition, which will be the focus of the workshop.
