Prediction during language processing: Beyond activation

Abstract: Prediction during language processing has been extensively studied over the past decades, however, the specific mechanisms involved are under ongoing debate. In this talk I will focus on a suggested distinction between two qualitatively distinct prediction processes, pre-activation and pre-updating, presenting experiments aimed to examine key aspects of these processes.

Island effects and their absence with multiple questions in Bulgarian

Abstract: Grammars exhibit island effects. That is to say, the linguistic knowledge a speaker has prevents them from forming questions in certain environments. For example, the string "Who did you meet the professor that taught?" cannot be used to ask who is the person such that you met the professor who taught that person. In this talk, I report experimental evidence concerning the possible obviation of island effects in Bulgarian with multiple questions.


Bilingual Code-switching: Exploring Variation in Comprehension Costs

Abstract: Bilinguals experience costs during comprehension when there is a switch between languages—taking longer to process a “code-switch” than single-language input. However, the magnitude of these comprehension costs varies. In this talk, I present data from a study that attempts to explain variation in code-switch comprehension costs.
