Dr. Torgrim Solstad was a senior researcher in the Research Area III 'Syntax & Lexicon'.
In his research, he investigates various aspects of the mental encyclopedia. Among other things, he focuses on the properties of the lexicon itself: How is our knowledge about the conditions of the use of words organized? How can we grasp the flexibility of the meaning of words? He also investigates how meaning is processed from a psycholinguistic standpoint: How can formal models help to better understand mental processing?
