Acquisition of morphosyntax/Languages in contact

Led by Silvia Perpiñán and Joyce Bruhn de Garavito

This research group conducts theoretical and experimental research on linguistic knowledge, language acquisition, language development, and bilingualism. We examine morphosyntactic and semantic properties in contexts of early and late acquisition, language contact, bilingualism, and multilingualism.  We tend to focus on the study of Romance languages (Spanish, Italian, Catalan, French, Portuguese) in compination with each other or with other languages such as English, Arabic, Polish, Chinese, or with indigenous languages such as Nahuatl or P'urhépecha.  Among other topics, we investigate how language contact and bilingualism may lead to language change, and who the agents of language change may be, particularly in the Hispanic world.

Our aim is to provide a regular forum for discussion of work in progress and to create a natural environment for collaborative research. To this end we hold regular reading group meetings and organize common experimental projects.
