Cognitive Linguistics and Psycholinguistics

We carry out research into the cognitive processes involved in language production and comprehension across modalities. We explore how language is acquired and represented in the mind, using a range of experimental approaches in our Linguistics Research Laboratory.

Areas of research include:

  • Construction Grammar
  • Cognitive Linguistics and cognitive variables
  • Embodied cognition and metaphor
  • First and second language acquisition
  • Formulaic language and lexical patterns
  • Individual differences in language processing
  • Language and the brain / clinical linguistics
  • Memory and attention
  • Sensory language
