Linguistics Colloquium: Masaya Yoshida
February 3, 2012 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The focus of Professor Yoshida’s research is on aspects of syntactic representations both in static knowledge of language and in real time sentence processing. The studies carried out so far attempted to integrate work in theoretical and typological syntax and experimental psycholinguistics in order to reveal representations of sentence structures built in real time and mechanisms working behind online sentence processing.
Research interests include:
- Human Sentence Processing : Syntactic prediction in online sentence processing, Processing of Islands, Processing of Ellipsis.
- Syntax: Cross-Linguistic Studies on Island Constraints, Ellipsis Phenomena (the syntax of sluicing and gapping), P-stranding Parameter, The syntax of conditional clauses in Japanese.
Masaya Yoshida is Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Northwestern University. This talk is presented by the Department of Linguistics. For more information please contact Nathan Arnett, firstname.lastname@example.org.
