Nicole Gotzner’s conducts highly innovative research at the interface between language meaning, language use, language acquisition, language processing and general cognition. This applies in particular to her approach in combining perspectives derived from formal semantics and pragmatics with experimental methods from psycholinguistics, corpus linguistics and phonetics as well as computational modelling and aspects of game theory. In all these areas, Gotzner’s work establishes a still novel connection between theory and experimental methodology. As such, Gotzner pursues linguistics based on cognitive science. She heads the Emmy Noether Group “Scales in language processing and acquisition” (SPA).
