Peripatetic Seminar on Language, Computation and Cognition
Séminaire Itinérant Langue, Computation, Cognition

Prof. John Anderson
Emeritus Professor of English Language, University of Edinburgh
Fellow of the British Academy
Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail

“Perpaus” is a peripatetic/itinerant seminar on language (and, in 
particular, on its semantic aspects) studied from a pluridisciplinary 
perspective, through its structures, its logico-formal and computational 
properties as well as in the light of the cognitive processes it gives rise to.
Organized by several research groups from the Pyrenean region (Toulouse, 
Bordeaux, Bayonne, Donostia-San Sebastián), the “Perpaus” consortium 
welcomes, for each of its cycles, a renowned researcher who presents, in 
the various centres, the main results of her/his research as well as 
her/his analyses and reflections about the chosen linguistic themes.
The Perpaus-04 invited speaker is John Anderson, Emeritus Professor of the 
University of Edinburgh, Fellow of the British Academy and Doctor Honoris 
Causa of the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail. Author of ten important 
books and more than a hundred papers or chapters in prestigious 
international journals or book series, John Anderson is world-famous for 
his contribution to the elaboration of case grammar and for his work on the 
localist hypothesis. His research has covered the various fields of the 
linguistic domain (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) and has been 
guided by the idea that all levels of linguistic representation have 
essentially the same structure. More generally, John Anderson considers the 
language faculty as being grounded in more general cognitive abilities 
which underlie perception and action. John Anderson’s lectures will take 
place at Toulouse, Bordeaux and Donostia-San Sebastián.
