Contents

  • Normal processes of reading
  • reading disorders
  • dyslexia
Structural relations between elements in a sentence
  • syntactic properties
  • syntactic categories and how they differ from semantic categories
  • details of and constraints on 'movement' in synta
  • extent of shared syntactic properties across all natural languages
  • theories of syntactic structure
  • Theories and mechanisms of sentence processing in children and adults
  • cross-linguistic influence in sentence processing of bilinguals
  • fundamentals of sentence processing methods (e.g., priming, self-paced reading, eye tracking, ERP)
  • Theories of language developmen
  • fiirst and second language acquisition
  • bilingualism
  • language disorders
  • relations between language development and cognitive development
  • theories and mechanisms of language perception, comprehension, and production
  • relations between language, memory and other cognitive processes
  • to introduce and familiarize students with the relationship between brain and language
  • to familiarize students with ways in which language and the brain are investigated
  • to understand how language is represented in the “typical” brain
  • to provide a foundation for students to understand how language breaks down as a result of acquired brain injury
  • to understand how language is represented and breaks down in bi/multilingual brains and in visuospatial languages

(i.e. sign language)

  • to give students the practical skills to properly report, review, and reference research articles in the field

Competencies / intended learning achievements

On successfully completing the module students will be able to,
  • present their knowledge of special topics from the field of language and (psycho)linguistics
  • apply the acquired understanding of sentence processing and language development, detect structural relations between elements in a sentence and classify syntactic properties and categories, and compare language and reading disorders
  • read and interpret scientific English literature in this field
  • summarize and compare research papers and highlight relevant information from these papers
  • debate scientific issues with peers or lecturers and thereby refer to complex concepts
