Biography

Research Interests

o    Syntactic Characteristics of Verbs
Research on German verbs has indicated that the syntactic characteristics of verbs (the number of arguments required by a verb and the number of compatible argument structures) influence processing of single verbs presented in a lexical decision task without any syntactic context. The number of arguments had an inhibitory influence while the number of argument structures facilitated verb processing. Following from the work on syntactic characteristics of German verbs there is a line of current research into syntactic characteristics of verbs in French (in collaboration with Sarah Berthaud).

o    Irish/English Bilingualism

The use of both English and Irish in both Irish society and education system offers the possibility to compare acquisition of both languages. Some children who grow up as monolingual English speakers are immersed into all Irish schools where during the first few years the exclusive medium of teaching is Irish. Native speakers of Irish are exposed to English through media from very early age, and also through education later in life. All children educated through English learn Irish as second language. We compare narrative production, use of grammar, code switching and intrusions in those different groups. This research is conducted collaboration with Conchúr Ó Giollagáin and Mary-Pat O’Malley.
