- Where Paris Diderot (Paris 7)
Course overview: In the summer of 2019, Ewan Dunbar and Barbara Hemforth graciously invited me to Paris Diderot (Paris 7) to give a brief, four-week seminar. I chose as the topic ‘Acceptability, Decision-making and Parsing. I had a great time visiting this group, and I am very happy to make available the material I developed for this seminar.
This seminar is based in large part on work that Matt Wagers and I have done in collaboration, exploring the application of Signal Detection Theory to acceptability judgments. Here you may read some of our thoughts on this:
- Our chapter on the application of SDT to acceptability judgments (DRAFT!)
- Dillon, Andrews, Rotello and Wagers (2018)
|Session 1||General introduction to SDT|
|Session 2||Receiver operater characteristic modeling; Ambiguity advantage|
|Session 3||Drift diffusion model; Agreement attraction|
|Session 4||Illusions of grammaticality|
As part of the course, I shared a tutorial data-set that Matt Wagers and I created to teach the tools of SDT for acceptability judgment experiments.
