PhD Projects – Overview

Representation, processing and articulatory proficiency in English as a second language – PhD project 2018-2020

Malin Mangersnes’ PhD project is supervised by Allison Wetterlin and Linda Wheeldon. This project investigates bilingual word production and language representation. The aim is to relate aspects of first and second language proficiency to experimental measures of language control. The experimental measures include speeded word production and language switching tasks. In addition, objective first and second language proficiency measures are collected along with questionnaire based self-reported proficiency and bilingual profile data. The experimental tasks will be completed in both the speakers’ native language, Norwegian, and their second language, English.
