Connectionist and symbolist sentence processing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

This chapter argues that claims for recurrent networks as plausible models of human sentence processing from which generalizations that have seemed to require the mediation of symbolically represented grammars are" emergent" are misplaced. Rather, it is argued that the linguistic relevance of connectionist networks lies in their application to lexicalist grammar induction. i. What do SRNs compute?
