Impact of Automated Generated Text on the Linguistic Intuition and the Language Evolution

In the IMAGINE project, we investigate the IMpact of Automated Generated Text on the linguistic INtuition and the language Evolution.

IMAGINE is part of the NCCR project Evolving Language: it is the UZH side of the CompuLang Work Package within the Digitisation Project under the Theme 3: Social Cognition of Language. The Digitisation project focuses on the future of language. It explores the impact of language technology and artificial languages on human linguistic intuitions, mental representations and speech output.)

In IMAGINE, we aim to measure the impact of machine translated output and other automated generated texts on the human language.
