This advanced Masters course takes an in-depth look at selected current research topics in the areas of multilingual grammatical representation and processing, focusing on studies of sentence-level phenomena in bi- or multilingual adults. The course will also examine methodological issues and consider the advantages and disadvantages of different experimental research methods and designs. Specific topics to be covered include: the relationship between language processing and acquisition, individual differences in multilingual representation and processing, prediction in non-native language processing, heritage language speakers, bilingual production and codeswitching, and bilingualism and aging.
This course builds on my course "Second Language Processing" (VM4/I) and presupposes some familiarity with current issues and models in experimental language processing research. The course is not suitable for first-semester students.
