Support Description: Support is provided for two graduate positions in the program of Cognitive Science of Language at McMaster University. The support is preferably for PhD students, however, applicants interested in MSc degree are encouraged to apply as well. The support is part of a research project on the relationship between scrambling and definiteness systems in Germanic and Slavic. The actual thesis project can be either in syntax (scrambling) or in semantics (definiteness systems) or in the syntax-semantics interface in these two language families. Since the project is situated within the Cognitive Science of Language program at McMaster University -- a new interdisciplinary program with a strong emphasis on psycholinguistics -- applicants interested in the psycholinguistics aspects of the syntax-semantics interface are especially encouraged to apply.
