Tamasi, Katalin; McKean, Christina; Gafos, Adamantios; Hohle, Barbara – Journal of Child Language, 2019
In a preferential looking paradigm, we studied how children's looking behavior and pupillary response were modulated by the degree of phonological mismatch between the correct label of a target referent and its manipulated form. We manipulated degree of mismatch by introducing one or more featural changes to the target label. Both looking behavior…

van der Slik, Frans; Hout, Roeland van; Schepens, Job – Second Language Research, 2019
Applied linguistics may benefit from a morphological complexity measure to get a better grip on language learning problems and to better understand what kind of typological differences between languages are more important than others in facilitating or impeding adult learning of an additional language. Using speaking proficiency scores of 9,000…

Roussel, Stéphanie; Gruson, Brigitte; Galan, Jean-Philippe – International Journal of Listening, 2019
This study investigates the impact of a high-level and a low-level process-based L2 comprehension training on L1 French students' listening performances. These students (N = 108) of English, Spanish, and German came from five different classes. After a L2 comprehension pretest, the participants were divided into two experimental groups. During the…

Schuster, Swetlana; Lahiri, Aditi – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
On the evidence of four lexical-decision tasks in German, we examine speakers' sensitivity to internal morphological composition and abstract morphological rules during the processing of derived words, real and novel. In a lexical-decision task with delayed priming, speakers were presented with two-step derived nouns such as "Heilung…

Szagun, Gisela; Schramm, Satyam A. – First Language, 2019
This study examines the role of the lexicon and grammatical structure building in early grammar. Parent-report data in CDI format from a sample of 1151 German-speaking children between 1;6 and 2;6 and longitudinal spontaneous speech data from 22 children between 1;8 and 2;5 were used. Regression analysis of the parent-report data indicates that…

de Carlos, Pablo; Alén, Elisa; Pérez-González, Ana; Figueroa, Beatriz – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
In most service activities, customer satisfaction depends largely on the direct interaction with service providers. In the case of tourism, this interaction often occurs between people from different countries and whose mother tongues are different. In this context, concepts such as cultural proximity, linguistic accommodation, expectations and…

Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Wessel, Lena; Redder, Angelika – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
To what degree can multilingual students profit from bilingual teaching approaches, even when they lack experience in the academic or technical register in their home languages? This study explores this research question in a mixed methods design for a German/Turkish bilingual intervention aimed at fostering conceptual understanding of fractions…

Kluczniok, Katharina; Mudiappa, Michael – European Educational Research Journal, 2019
This paper focuses on the influence of socio-economic risk factors and different aspects of the home learning environment in early childhood on children's language competencies (vocabulary and grammar skills). The assumption is that children with more risk factors have lower competencies, but the home learning environment (measured by everyday…

Sánchez, Laura – English Language Teaching, 2019
In an era of globalization, multilingualism is no longer the exception but the rule. To fully promote the communicative and functional development of multilingual learners, different educational programs at school have been implemented in the past few years. The study presented here is a contribution in this direction, by investigating the…

Thurlow, Crispin – International Journal of Multilingualism, 2019
In the way of commentary, I offer a brief, summative reflection on the complex, multifarious nature of people's semiotic engagements in and with space. Against the backdrop of three snapshot case studies, I suggest there are actually few neat boundaries to be drawn between the linguistic and non-linguistic, between the semiotic and the spatial,…

Stoehr, Antje; Benders, Titia; van Hell, Janet G.; Fikkert, Paula – Language Learning and Development, 2019
Bilingual children are often exposed to non-native speech through their parents. Yet, little is known about the relation between bilingual preschoolers' speech production and their speech input. The present study investigated the production of voice onset time (VOT) by Dutch-German bilingual preschoolers and their sequential bilingual mothers. The…

Meyerhöffer, Nina; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The dominant role of English as the global language of science entails a requirement for science teachers to equip their non-native English-speaking students with receptive and productive language skills for communication in scientific contexts. Although science courses with English elements are part of some schools' bilingual programmes, they are…

Lemmerth, Natalia; Hopp, Holger – Language Acquisition: A Journal of Developmental Linguistics, 2019
To investigate cross-linguistic lexical and syntactic influences in grammatical gender in early bilingualism, we tested 12 simultaneous, 12 early successive bilingual Russian-German children, and 15 monolingual German children aged 8-9 years. An elicited production task in German shows that all bilingual children assign target gender to nouns,…

Järvikivi, Juhani; Schimke, Sarah; Pyykkönen-Klauck, Pirita – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
We often use pronouns like it or they without explicitly mentioned antecedents. We asked whether the human processing system that resolves such indirect pronouns uses the immediate visual-sensory context in multimodal discourse. Our results showed that people had no difficulty understanding conceptually central referents, whether explicitly…

Kulke, Louisa; Rakoczy, Hannes – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Theory of Mind (ToM), the ability to attribute mental states to agents, has usually been measured with explicit verbal tasks and found to develop slowly during the preschool years. New implicit ToM measures have lately revolutionized the field by suggesting that ToM may be present much earlier in development. However, recent replication studies of…
