Attentional Factors in Integration and Separation of the Auditory and Visual Speech Signals
The project deals with integration of the auditory and visual signals in speech processing. It involves taking into consideration discrepancy between the signals and attentional factors. The first study examines prerequistes för integration to occur, looking at articulatory discrepancies. In the ...
A typological study of the grammaticalization of progressive aspect
Diachronic studies on aspect have shown that progressive aspect precedes imperfective aspect and present tense in the grammaticalization process. Progressive constructions are often periphrastic and more restrictive in their functions. In addition, the lexical components in progressive ...
Automatic identification of constructions for comparative analysis of Swedish texts
Construction grammar models see human language as built from constructions -- a large number of learned language patterns which can be combined in certain established ways to create utterances. The project intends to construct theoretical models and practical methods for identifying constructions ...
Children’s sign language
At present, I am studying children’s sign language. The material of the study consists primarily of videotaped sign language communication recorded monthly at a preschool during a four-year period. The aim of the project is to describe some major aspects of the development during early sign ...
Development of automatic hearing threshold detection of specific frequencies in young infants using eye tracking
A prototype of an automatic hearing threshold test for young infants using eye tracking is being developed at the Phonetics Lab at SU in close collaboration with the Karolinska Universitetssjukhus (project leader: Inger Uhlén) and Tobii Technologies. The infant hearing test is based on the ...
Disentangling the interaction among gender, number and evaluative markers
Francesca Di Garbo
The main purpose of this project is to carry out a typological investigation of the interrelations among three grammatical domains: gender, number and evaluative markers. Cross-linguistic evidence of the ways in which such grammatical domains interact with each other both synchronically and ...

Effects of enhanced parental input on young children´s vocabulary development and subsequent literacy development - SPRINT
Children's everyday language environment determines their early language development, which in turn influences subsequent literacy development. SPRINT aims to study how a parent support program can contribute to a child's language development and later literacy development. In the project, parents ...
Linguistic archaeology on New Ireland, Papua New Guinea
Kuot is a language spoken by some 1000 people on the island of New Ireland in Papua New Guinea in the southwest Pacific. It is an isolate, with no demonstrable relatives, and it is endangered as children are not learning it. The project has two interrelated aims: 1. To document the vocabulary of ...
Modelling infant language acquisition from parent-child interaction: identifying, testing, and simulating components and consequences of speech and gestures
This project aims to model infant language development from an interactional perspective during the first 3 years of life by identifying, testing, and simulating some of the fundamental processes involved in early language acquisition. A range of components that can be summarised by speech and ...
