Can the brain help answering old linguistic questions?: On distributed words, semantic compositionality and abstract meaning

Abstract : Linguistic questions need to be answered with linguistic tools, based on observations of humans who use and understand language. However, assuming there is a mechanism underlying language use and the working of this mechanism can be observed directly, by brain imaging, it might be possible to obtain clues about language by looking directly at the the brain. In this talk, I will highlight brain research addressing linguistic questions.
