Research Interests

Research Description

UNLEASH (Undergraduate Research) We study spoken and written language processing through syntactic ambiguity. Our current research examines how syntactically and semantically ambiguous sentences are comprehended. American, Dutch, French, and Korean students hear computer-generated speech in American English, Dutch, French, and Korean. We vary the amount of time between linguistic phrases of spoken language. The results will have important implications for instruction and bi-lingual communication. RA duties include 1) reading original research articles, 2) running the study/studies, 3) entering and analyzing data, 4) preparing experimental materials, as well as 5) preparing for conference presentations.
