The CEU Department of Philosophy cordially invites you to a talk 
(as part of its Departmental Colloquium series)

István Kenesei (Hungarian Academy of Science (Linguistics)
on
`The cognitive turn in linguistics: multiple creativity in language`
 
Tuesday, 13 November, 2012, 5.30 PM, Zrinyi 14, Room 412
 
 
ABSTRACT
 
I regard research into the creative nature of language as underlying
the cognitive turn in linguistics in recent years. Formal creativity, or
in 
other words, the recursive nature of language (with respect to both the
basic units, such as words, and the end products, i.e., sentences) is
what determines further domains of creativity, víz., at the level of
meanings and in the theory of mind, providing for their unlimited and
variable nature. Starting from Chomskyan principles of the formal
properties of language arguments are drawn from the theories of
metaphors and from 
neurolinguistics.
