Acting, reacting, and interacting - Interactivity dynamics illustrated through a new study of neologism

Worsøe, L. B. (Guest lecturer)

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


The way people create and make 'new words' communicatively significant show us this human ability to cognitively adapt and develop according to new situations. Since new words are inherently dynamic, the study of neologism should be the door path to insight regarding this cognitive dynamics of people's language and everyday communication.
