Has language developed to serve as a system of communication or one of thought? While language is clearly an excellent tool for communication, the possible contribution of higher order cognitive processes other than language to communication may provide insights on how we think about language… read more

Pagliarini, Crain, & Guasti (2018) showed that children acquiring Italian start to attribute a “neither” interpretation to negative disjunctive sentences, but converge to the adult “at least one” interpretation earlier than children acquiring Japanese or Mandarin. This earlier convergence is… read more
Narrative comprehension is a complex process that requires the ability to integrate language information from the speech signal with visual and contextual knowledge, while drawing also from social cognition and executive functions. Although many studies have examined narrative comprehension in… read more

Durrleman, Stephanie 2015 Nominal architecture in Jamaican CreoleJournal of Pidgin and Creole Languages 30:2, pp. 265–306 | Article
Our study shows that the extended projection of nominals in Jamaican Creole (JC) is composed of a rich array of hierarchically organized functional projections, in line with cartographic research (Cinque 2002, Rizzi 2004, Belletti 2004). The functional material identified strikes parallelisms with… read more

French has several optional strategies for the formation of wh-interrogatives, whereas relative clauses (RCs) do not display this optionality. In a comprehension study with French-speaking children aged 5 to 8, we show that two factors interact in the processing of object A’-dependencies in child… read more
