Computational Psycholinguistics

definition: Computational models of the architectures and mechanisms which underly human language processing. Computational psycholinguistics aims to develop predictive computational theories of mind that explicitly characterize how people both use and acquire knowledge of language. Models are evaluated in terms of their ability to account for human linguistic performance in tasks such as incremental ambiguity resolution, language acquisition, and production.
