Project Description

This project will examine the relationship between lexical availability and the advanced planning of syntactic structure for spoken sentence production. The research will make use of both reaction time (RT) and eye-tracking paradigms to examine how speakers plan the production of sentences in order to describe simple visual scenes.

Funding Notes

Self funded applicants will be considered. Exceptional applicants (First class undergraduate and Masters) may be entered for the ESRC Scholarship competition.
