Projects


Tagalog morphosyntax and word order


Together with Prof. Evan Kidd of MPI Nijmegen, I investigate children's acquisition of Tagalog morphosyntax and thematic role assignment. Older articles were for my PhD, supervised by Prof Barbara Höhle at the University of Potsdam


Phonotactic acquisition of German and Russian infants


In Prof. Natalie Boll-Avetisyan's C07 project under the University of Potsdam's SFB 1287, I look at German- and Russian-speaking monolinguals' and bilinguals' acquisition of phonotactics.


Tagalog negation and narratives


The project on Tagalog-speaking children's acquisition of negation words is a collaboration with Roman Feiman and Scott AnderBois from Brown University. The narratives project was Kathleen Kay Amora's Master thesis at the University of Potsdam.


Cross-linguistic study on word order


This is an MPI NL's Levelt award project on the order of given and new arguments in different languages. My collaborators are Natalia Levshina and Yevheniy Skyra (MPI NL).
