Areas of Interest

My interests span several types of bi- and multilingualism. I am currently developing work in two main lines of research. One looks at the way in which non-native speakers process compound words, a domain of interface between morphological and lexical-semantic aspects. I believe this can tell us much about how structural and conceptual information interact in real-time comprehension and production, and how this differs-to the extent that it does-between native and non-native speakers. This is especially interesting in multilingual speakers, where several dimensions of the variables at play are multiplied, and cross-linguistic influence at the level of processing is possible and even likely. The second line of research focuses on the very beginning-and, in my current work, the developmental sequence-of third language acquisition, especially with respect to how previous linguistic experience contributes to shaping and/or constraining it. In other words, I care about how cross-linguistic influence at the level of linguistic representation impacts L3/Ln acquisition from the start and throughout development.
