Bilingualism and bilingual cognition

We are interested in the effects of knowing more than one language on cognition. Danijela Trenkic and Annie Clarke are investigating calendar processing in Chinese-English bilinguals. Norbert Vanek examines event conceptualisation processes in Czech-English and Hungarian-English sequential bilinguals.

  • Aspects of bilingual cognition: do L2 users perceive bodyparts and word order differently from monolingual native speakers? (Vivian Cook with Miho Sasaki, Keio University, Japan and Fatih Bayram, Newcastle University)
  • Calendar processing by English and Chinese speakers (Danijela Trenkic)
  • Language of the street: an investigation of street signs in terms of writing system, semiotics and multilingualism (Vivian Cook)
  • Event segmentation, component selection, temporal structuring and linearization of contextualised events (Norbert Vanek)
