Current research projects

"Differentiated linguistic and genetic explorations of language impairments and disorders within a biolinguistic approach on language faculty and language design (UG)"

Goal: We argue that an understanding of the faculty of language requires substantial interdisciplinary cooperation. One of the possible methods how to get access to what the recent work on biolinguistics has called HL (language faculty in the narrow sense, cf. Chomsky 2005; Hauser, Chomsky, Fitch 2002) is to explore the type of language impairments and disorders that are attested as genetically inherited disorders of different types ensuring at the same time that other deficits of cognition or cognitive capacities based on genetic mutations are not concerned.
