At long last! It’s my great pleasure to announce the publication of the special issue on “Laboratory in the field: advances in cross-linguistic psycholinguistics”, edited by Alice Harris (UMass), Elisabeth Norcliffe (MPI, Nijmegen), and me (Rochester), in Language, Cognition, and Neuroscience. It is an exciting collection of cross-linguistic studies on language production and comprehension and it feels great to see the proofs for the whole shiny issue:
The Language and Linguistics Compass (LLC) has launched a new joint project with LinguistList, so that they now showcase selected LLC articles on LinguistList. You get free access to these articles for that time and can comment on them in a moderated forum.
If you have time, have a look at and possibly add to the discussion forum on Jaeger & Norcliffe. 2009. The Cross-linguistic Study of Sentence Production, 3(4), 866 – 88. It just was posted, so it’s probably still scarily empty ;).
Heya. There are no results yet, but Katrina Housel, Carlos Gomez Gallo, and I just came back from the Valladolid, Mexico where we piloted and ran 3 studies on Yucatec and 4 studies on Mexican Spanish.
Elisabeth Norcliffe and I are currently working on a short summary paper on cross-linguistic psycholinguistic work on sentence production (experiments and corpus studies w/ a sufficiently large sample and quantitative investigation). We would like to focus this effort on research on:
- accessibility effects on word order, voice, and other morphosyntactic variations
- radical vs moderate incrementality during sentence formulation
- syntactic persistence (within and across languages)
- disfluencies (but not speech errors)
If you know of work in any of these areas that we should consider, we would appreciate your feedback. Just leave a comment at the bottom of this page (it’s a moderated forum, so it will not appear immediately, but usually it does not take us longer than a day to accept your posts). You can also send an email to Florian. Read the rest of this entry »
