PhD project
Interaction of linguistic and non-linguistic context in language processing.

Field of research

The main aim is to investigate the interaction between world knowledge and temporal verb morphology in language processing. A secondary aim is to investigate this effect in non-native speakers of diverse linguistic backgrounds to determine how the grammar of a native language can affect the on-line processing of a second language when multiple sources of information are involved.
