- Language Acquisition and Linguistic Processing
This line gathers researches on two interlinked fields: language acquisition and linguistic processing. In the first one, from the interactionist perspective, it interests to observe the acquisition and development of speech, writing (literacy), and deaf sign languages. In addition, there are also researches in acquisition driven under the innatist perspective, which focuses on the recognition of the grammar of the native language. In the second one, from the generative perspective, it interests to study the comprehension and production of adult language based on language processing. In both fields, there is also the interest in the study of the so-called language disorders or pathologies.
