Welcome to the Psycholinguistics Group!

Our Research

How do the two languages of a bilingual or second language speaker interact and influence each other? How do crosslinguistic differences in  morphosyntactic structure affect language development and processing?  Do L2 speakers process language in the same way as L1 speakers? What  role do discourse expectations play in L1 and L2 sentence processing? How do psychedelics influence language processing?
Our group investigates these questions in L1, L2, and bilingual speakers of several languages including Basque, Cree, English, German, Greek,  Hebrew, Inuktitut, Persian, Portuguese, and Spanish. We use a variety of on-line and off-line methods including self-paced reading, priming, eye tracking, EEG, naturalistic observation, and elicited production.
