Polarity in L3 English: The Initial Stages and Beyond
Línia de recerca: 

Psycholinguistics; adult L3/Ln acquisition; Child and adult L2 acquisition, contexts of micro-variation; Multilingualisn; Morphosyntax; Syntax-semantics interface.

Breu presentació: 

I am currently working on the acquisition of Negative Polarity Items and Negative Quantifiers in L3 English by early bilinguals of Catalan and Spanish. I use both off-line and online measures to assess  morphosyntactic transfer at the early stages and subsequent development. I am also interested in looking at possible regressive transfer effects from the L3 to the two previously acquired languages. I have recently defended my PhD thesis at the University of Reading: "Polarity in L3 English: The Initial Stages and Beyond ".
