Dr Jenni Rodd

Dr Jenni Rodd will be giving a Lunch Hour Lecture entitled: ‘Barking up the right tree: How do we understand what words mean?’

‘If you look up just about any word in a dictionary you will usually see a long list of possible definitions, yet it takes no apparent effort to figure out the intended definition of a word when it is used in everyday life. Dr Jenni Rodd will talk about the cognitive mechanisms that allow people to make rapid ‘best guesses’ about a word’s meaning.’

When: 13:15-13:55 on Tuesday 18th October.

Where: Darwin Lecture Theatre, Darwin Building, UCL, London, WC1E 6BT (access via Malet Place).

This lecture is free and open to all, so please do come along!
