C01: Shift of borders in syntactic variability: A training approach

The project studies the effects of repeated exposure (training) to unfamiliar/ unacceptable constructions on language production and the perception of grammaticality. We hypothesise that the production probability and acceptability of constructions that are unacceptable in a particular speaker's variety can be increased by training, but only for those structures that are licensed by the overall grammatical system of the language since they figure in other varieties. To this end, we will focus on the development of an adequate training technique.
