B04: Variability in bilingual language processing

This project examines how Turkish/German bilingual speakers’ processing of sentences and morphologically complex words is influenced by grammatical vs non-grammatical constraints. We specifically investigate two important sources for inter-individual variability in bilinguals: age of acquisition and amount of exposure and practice. We also determine the range of intra-individual variability in bilinguals’ performance across different processing tasks and modalities. The project aims to develop a model that accounts both for linguistic choices which are subject to variability and for those which are consistent and robust in bilingual language processing.
