Grammatical processing in language learners
The ability to process the linguistic input in real time is crucial for successfully acquiring a language, and yet little is known about how language learners comprehend or produce language in real
Continuity and shallow structures in language processing
The core idea that we argued for in the target article was that grammatical processing in a second language (L2) is fundamentally different from grammatical processing in one's native (first)
How native-like is non-native language processing?
The processing of ambiguous sentences by first and second language learners of English
This study investigates the way adult second language (L2) learners of English resolve relative clause attachment ambiguities in sentences such as The dean liked the secretary of the professor who
Topological quantum chemistry
A complete electronic band theory is proposed, which builds on the conventional band theory of electrons, highlighting the link between the topology and local chemical bonding and can be used to predict many more topological insulators.
Morphological Structure in Native and Nonnative Language Processing
This article presents a selective overview of studies that have investigated how advanced adult second language (L2) learners process morphologically complex words. The studies reported here have
Children's Processing of Ambiguous Sentences: A Study of Relative Clause Attachment
In this study, we investigate children's and adults' relative clause attachment preferences in sentences such as The student photographed the fan of the actress who was looking happy. Twenty-nine 6-
Processing wh-dependencies in a second language: a cross-modal priming study
This study investigates the real-time processing of wh-dependencies by advanced Greek-speaking learners of English using a cross-modal picture priming task. Participants were asked to respond to
Antecedent Priming at Trace Positions in Children’s Sentence Processing
The antecedent priming effect in the high-span participants indicates that in both children and adults, dislocated arguments access their antecedents at gap positions, and could mean that these participants required more time to integrate the dislocated constituent and reactivated the filler later during the sentence.
Beyond Dirac and Weyl fermions: Unconventional quasiparticles in conventional crystals
The guiding principle of the classification is to find irreducible representations of the little group of lattice symmetries at high-symmetry points in the Brillouin zone for each of the 230 space groups (SGs), the dimension of which corresponds to the number of bands that meet at the high-Symmetry point.
