Psycholinguistics! I study how people process, produce, and acquire language. I use a mix of behavioral and computational methods.

Specifically right now I'm investigating to what extent people activate unigram representations within bigrams of varying pairwise mutual information.

Edit: stupid phone doesn't realize that unigram and bigram are words and corrected them to weird things.

Wernicke's Broca is strong in this one. ;)

Do you think you could explain simply what unigrams and bigrams are?

Yes! They're just unnecessarily jargon-y terms for "one word" and "two words". Linguistics has a serious terminology problem :p

Yeah, that makes sense.
