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).
