Differential effects of language proficiency and use on L2 lexical prediction. The Mental Lexicon 17:2, pp. 213–2382022.
Language experience is essential for SLA. Yet, studies comparing the role of L2 proficiency and L2 use on L2 processing are scant, and there are no studies examining how these variables modulate learners’ ability to generalize grammatical associations to new instances. This study investigates… read more | Article
2021. Chapter 4. When more is better. Research on Second Language Processing and Processing Instruction: Studies in honor of Bill VanPatten, Leeser, Michael J., Gregory D. Keating and Wynne Wong (eds.), pp. 125–150
This chapter investigates the role of first language (L1) transfer, second language (L2) proficiency, and working memory (WM) on processing subject-verb number agreement in Spanish. Intermediate and advanced English and Romanian learners of Spanish and Spanish monolinguals completed a WM test and a… read more | Chapter
Chapter 7. Animacy hierarchy effects on L2 processing of Differential Object Marking. The Acquisition of Differential Object Marking, Mardale, Alexandru and Silvina Montrul (eds.), pp. 183–2062020.
Studies on L2 processing of Differential Object Marking (DOM) are scant and mostly focus on the animacy of the object. We investigated the interaction of three understudied factors in L1 and L2 processing of DOM: type of animacy (human vs. non-human animal), gender and number of the object… read more | Chapter
Processing DOM in relative clauses. Representation and Processing in Bilingual Morphology, Austin, Jennifer R. (ed.), pp. 120–1602019.
Early heritage bilinguals have been repeatedly found to differ from late bilinguals and from monolinguals (e.g., Montrul, 2008, 2011). In the realm of Spanish Differential Object Marking (DOM), both early heritage bilinguals (Montrul et al., 2015) and late bilinguals (e.g., Bowles & Montrul, 2008;… read more | Article
Suprasegmental information cues morphological anticipation during L1/L2 lexical access. Journal of Second Language Studies 1:1, pp. 31–592018.
We use visual-world eye-tracking and gating methods to investigate whether Spanish monolinguals and English late learners of Spanish use prosodic cues (lexical stress) to anticipate morphological information (suffixes) during spoken word recognition, and if they do, whether L2 proficiency and… read more | Article
Chapter 12. The processing of intrasentential anaphoric subject pronouns in L2 Spanish. Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 11: Selected papers from the 44th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL), London, Ontario, Perpiñán, Silvia, David Heap, Itziri Moreno-Villamar and Adriana Soto-Corominas (eds.), pp. 247–2642017.
This paper examines whether L2 learners of Spanish can attain native-like interpretive and parsing patterns in intrasentential subject anaphor resolution, and the extent to which these patterns are modulated by L1 transfer. Adult advanced L2 learners of Spanish with different L1s (Moroccan Arabic,… read more | Chapter
