Outstanding applicants for PhD study are particularly sought for the
following areas:

-Syntactic theory: Dr. Dirk Bury would welcome proposals in syntax and
related areas. (He is currently supervising research on grammatical effects
of language contact.)

-Cognitive linguistics: Prof. Vyv Evans welcomes proposals on figurative
language and abstract thought, conceptual structure and lexical
representation within the framework of LCCM Theory.

-Bilingual sound systems: Prof. Ineke Mennen is interested in supervising
projects that address how bilinguals manage two (possibly competing) sound
systems (specifically at the prosodic level), and/or the relative influence
of prosody and segments on perceptions of foreign accent in L2 learners.
She would be specifically interested in exploring neuro-scientific
approaches to investigate perceptions of foreign accent.

-Bilingual cognition: Dr. Panos Athanasopoulos is supervising PhDs in the
