His primary scientific interests are in Linguistics, Noun, Language acquisition, Syntax and Cognitive psychology. His Linguistics study frequently links to related topics such as Inference. His Noun research integrates issues from Affect and Extension.
His research integrates issues of Morpheme, Plural and Numeral system in his study of Language acquisition. His Syntax research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Word, Bootstrapping, Mass noun and Count noun. His Set study, which is part of a larger body of work in Cognitive psychology, is frequently linked to Mental abacus, bridging the gap between disciplines.
David Barner mainly investigates Linguistics, Noun, Cognitive psychology, Language acquisition and Artificial intelligence. Linguistics is closely attributed to Numeral system in his work. He usually deals with Noun and limits it to topics linked to Inference and Utterance and Sentence.
His work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Cognitive development, Structure, Word and Perception. His Language acquisition research includes themes of Concept learning, Scalar implicature, Bootstrapping and Pragmatics. His Artificial intelligence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Contrast and Natural language processing.
His main research concerns Successor function, Natural language processing, Artificial intelligence, Cognitive psychology and Successor cardinal. His Successor function study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Analogy, Word and Arithmetic. David Barner has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Pragmatics, Implicature, Language acquisition, Logical consequence and Bootstrapping.
David Barner combines subjects such as Simple, Approximate number system, Wynn, Categorization and Theoretical linguistics with his study of Language acquisition. Semantics is closely connected to Word in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Perception. His Inference research includes elements of DUAL, Linguistics, Plural and Series.
