Project description

Only a few studies have examined eye movements in bilinguals and none of those was set up with the intention of investigating bilingual sentence processing. The proposed project means to bridge this theoretical gap by gathering a large amount of eye movement data in different groups of bilingual participants (Dutch-English and Dutch-French bilinguals with L2 proficiency and acquisition age varied).
