Research

My principal interests are in applied- and psycholinguistics and more specifically in the interaction between language acquisition and cognition and language acquisition and culture, involving languages as different as Dutch, German, English, French, Chinese and Polish. Specific research questions regard the influence of language-specific differences on first- and second-language acquisition, and the effects of cognitive maturity on the acquisition process.
