Zlatev, Jordan, Marta Sibierska, Przemysław Żywiczyński, Joost van de Weijer and Monika Boruta-Żywiczyńska 2024 Chapter 5. Can pantomime narrate? A cognitive semiotic approachPerspectives on Pantomime, Żywiczyński, Przemysław, Johan Blomberg and Monika Boruta-Żywiczyńska (eds.), pp. 115–138 | Chapter
Adopting the conceptual-empirical loop of cognitive semiotics, we define narrative as a three-part structure consisting of Narration, Story and Event-sequence and primary narrativity as the process of interpreting a narrative from the former to the latter two. We distinguish between simple… read more
Einfeldt, Marieke, Joost van de Weijer and Tanja Kupisch 2019 The production of geminates in Italian-dominant bilinguals and heritage speakers of ItalianLanguage, Interaction and Acquisition 10:2, pp. 177–203 | Article
This study examines cross-linguistic influence (CLI) in adult Italian-German bilinguals based on the production of gemination, a phenomenon that exists in Italian but not in German. We analyzed the spontaneous Italian speech of two groups of Italian-German bilinguals (heritage speakers of Italian… read more
The acquisition of preverbal liaison (e.g. ils arrivent /ilzaʀiv/) in second language (L2) French has rarely been explored in detail in previous studies on obligatory liaison. In this study, we conducted an elicited imitation test in order to study the influence of proficiency level, modality… read more
Placement errors of object clitics (OCL) in French have been documented in 2L1 and L2 but not in L1 acquisition (Granfeldt, 2012; Hamann & Belletti, 2006). In the present study, we investigate whether placement errors of third person singular OCLs may be due to cross-linguistic influence. We… read more

Communicating events through pantomime with and without vocalizationInteraction and Iconicity in the Evolution of Language, Hartmann, Stefan, Michael Pleyer, James Winters and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 465–488 | Article
A persistent controversy in language evolution research has been whether language emerged in the gestural-visual or in the vocal-auditory modality. A “dialectic” solution to this age-old debate has now been gaining ground: language was fully multimodal from the start and remains so to this day. In… read more
Weijer, Joost van de and Dylan Glynn 2014 Statistics in R: First stepsCorpus Methods for Semantics: Quantitative studies in polysemy and synonymy, Glynn, Dylan and Justyna A. Robinson (eds.), pp. 343–364 | Article
The R Project for Statistical Computing is one of the most comprehensive and widely used software options for statistical analysis. Moreover, it is open source, freely available and entirely cross-platform. It is for these reasons that the following chapters all employ R to demonstrate the… read more
The present study focuses on the acquisition of subject–verb agreement in number in spoken French. We compare production and comprehension of singular and plural verb forms in French monolingual and French-Swedish bilingual children (n = 58) aged five to ten. Overall, the results demonstrate that… read more
