Description:

PhD fellowship: Grammatical Gender in the L1 Attrition of German and Dutch

The Center for Language and Cognition Groningen is looking for a candidate to
conduct an investigation into the development of grammatical gender in the
attritional process of German and Dutch. The theoretical aim is to approach an
amalgamation of psycho-/neurolinguistic and formal linguistic (minimalist) views
on the representation of grammatical gender in linguistic knowledge. The
candidate will be a native speaker of either German or Dutch, with a good
knowledge of the other language (or the willingness to acquire it), excellent
English language proficiency, an interest in experimental, quantitative research
and a background in either generative linguistics or psycho-/neurolinguistics.

Contact Monika Schmid for further information on this project.
