B Projects: Dynamic Frames in Language and Science
While the projects of area A deal with foundational issues of frame theory, the projects of area B contribute exploratory work on the nature of frames in a broad range of scientific fields such as linguistics, psychiatry, law, neurology and philosophy. One uniting aspect of this area is the relevance of causal, temporal and aspectual information in the concepts they are dealing with. Several projects are in particular concerned with event frames, event modification, and the representation of temporal dynamics and change of state.
