D Projects: Extending the boundaries of frames

The projects of this area deal with phenomena that require an extension of the frame models used in the first funding period. Area D covers philosophical research on prototype-based reasoning and probabilistic frames, and on the interplay of public versus private meaning representations.  Furthermore, the linguistic projects of this area focus on the role of information structure in concept composition and the frame representation of morpho-phonological paradigms. Moreover, area D also extends the application of the frame approach to the domain of social cognition and social interaction.
