Language Faculty Science as a Categorical Science: Experimental Illustration

DateMonday, December 16, 2019 (13:00-17:00)
SpeakersHOJI Hajime (University of Southern California)
AbstractThe viability of language faculty science as a categorical science will be illustrated based on the results of the 100+ experiments (about 200 participants) conducted in Kyushu University in 2017. The striking confirmation of our categorical predictions will be presented by the Venn Diagram-based visual presentation of the experimental results, which also provides compelling justification for the most crucial aspects of the methodology being pursued.
