Fernandez, Leigh B., Agnesa Xheladini and Shanley E.M. Allen 2023 Proficient L2 readers do not have a risky reading strategyLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 13:6, pp. 854–872 | Article
Proficient first-language (L1) readers of alphabetic languages that are read left-to-right typically have a perceptual span of 3–4 characters to the left and 14–15 characters to the right of the foveal fixation. Given that second-language (L2) processing requires more cognitive resources, we… read more

Many ditransitive events can be expressed in German using either the indirect object construction (IOC) or the prepositional object construction (POC). While most previous research on ditransitives in German has focused on the IOC, very little attention has been paid to the much rarer POC or to… read more
Labrenz, Annika, Heike Wiese, Tatiana Pashkova and Shanley E.M. Allen 2022 The three-dot sign in language contactDiscourse-pragmatic markers, fillers and filled pauses: Pragmatic, cognitive, multimodal and sociolinguistic perspectives, Beeching, Kate, Grant Howie, Minna Kirjavainen and Anna Piasecki (eds.), pp. 246–271 | Article
In this study, we investigate the three-dot sign as a discourse marker (DM) with textual, subjective and intersubjective discourse functions. As a graphical marker that is used across languages, the three-dot sign is especially suitable for comparative studies and dynamics in language contact. Our… read more

Halverson (eds.), pp. 440–461 | Article
The manuscript provides readers with a basic methodological toolset for experimental psycholinguistic studies on translation. Following a description of key methodological concepts and the rationale behind experimental designs in psycholinguistics, we discuss experimental paradigms adopted from… read more

This chapter reviews the literature on preschool children’s sensitivity to cognitive accessibility in selecting linguistic forms to realize referents in speech. Both spontaneous speech and experimental production studies are reviewed, encompassing thirteen languages for monolingual children and… read more

This chapter serves as an introduction to The Acquisition of Reference. The volume brings together influential recent research on the study of children’s comprehension and production of reference, with a focus on discourse-pragmatic approaches and cross-linguistic comparison. In this chapter, we… read more
Allen, Shanley E.M. 2013 The acquisition of ergativity in InuktitutThe Acquisition of Ergativity, Bavin, Edith L. and Sabine Stoll (eds.), pp. 71–106 | Article
One potential challenge for children learning Inuktitut comes from the ergative case marking system, because of the contrast between the ergative system in morphology and the accusative system governing syntax. However, no studies have yet been published focusing on how Inuktitut-speaking children… read more

Patterns of code mixing vary according to relative typology of the languages and sociolinguistics of the contact situation (e.g., Muysken 2000). We extend understanding of the factors involved by analyzing for the first time mixing between an isolating Germanic language (English) and a… read more
