Afterword. Typologies and language use. Motion and Space across Languages: Theory and applications, Ibarretxe-Antuñano, Iraide (ed.), pp. 419–4462017.
The study of encoding of motion events is best approached as a search for potentially interacting factors, linguistic and non-linguistic. Every language presents a cluster of typological variables. In the domain of motion events, sets of variables co-occur in at least two major patterns (verb‑ and… read more | Chapter
Chapter 1. Social motivations for linguistic exploration: A diary study. Social Environment and Cognition in Language Development: Studies in honor of Ayhan Aksu-Koç, Ketrez, F. Nihan, Aylin C. Küntay, Şeyda Özçalışkan and Aslı Özyürek (eds.), pp. 3–182017.
The language-learning child is challenged to determine why there are alternate ways of expressing content, performing speech acts, and directing attention to inner states. Acquisition of syntax is driven by social cognition and by attention to linguistic constructions. This chapter presents an… read more | Chapter

Long-term habitual use of two languages can have consequences for mappings between form and content in one or the other of the languages. In processes of thinking for speaking, speakers attend to dimensions of experience that are available for morphosyntactic and lexical coding. In situations of… read more | Article
From speech with others to speech for self: A case study of “externalized drama”. Language in Interaction: Studies in honor of Eve V. Clark, Arnon, Inbal, Marisa Casillas, Chigusa Kurumada and Bruno Estigarribia (eds.), pp. 315–3322014.
The chapter is a case study of a particular kind of speech-for-self produced by a preschool-aged girl, characterized as “externalized dramas.” Unlike most such records of vocalized thought, this speech is not involved with guiding ongoing behavior, but rather with acting out problems of… read more | Article
Typology and channel of communication: Where do signed languages fit in. Language Typology and Historical Contingency: In honor of Johanna Nichols, Bickel, Balthasar, Lenore A. Grenoble, David A. Peterson and Alan Timberlake (eds.), pp. 47–682013.
Many sign languages have been described linguistically; however, such descriptions draw on grammatical traditions developed for the surrounding spoken languages. Although these languages are spoken all over the world, they all happen to be dependent marking, in terms of the typology developed by… read more | Article
