Knowledge and error flow from the same mental sources,
only success can tell the one from the other.
Ernst Mach (1905)
In (psycho)linguistics Errors, Mistakes, Spoonerisms and slips of the tongue are a big part of our lives, just like Reaction Times, they constantly provide a window into the functioning of the mind and call on us to develop theories capable of deriving both success and failure.
The FCT funded our project Syntactic and lexical factors in processing complexity PTDC/CLE-LIN/14212/2009, and CLUNL provided essential support for the creation of the BlackBox Lab at the Centro de Linguística da Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
