The Mechanisms of Sentence Production – Based on Evidence from Chinese Native Speakers
PhD student: Qi Zhang
Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Niels Schiller (LUCL) & Prof. Dr. Christian Dobel (Friedrich Schiller University Jena)
This project focuses on the mechanisms of sentence production. The present study investigates the influence of lexico-syntactic features on the flexibility of sentence planning scope. Adopting a picture description task, naming latencies and ERPs will be recorded to explore if the flexibility of planning scope is related to whether or not the nouns use the same classifiers.
