Research project title: ANACOR (A corpus-based approach to anaphora resolution in second language acquisition: beyond the interfaces).

Main goals: To understand how learners of a second language (L2) use anaphoric forms (overt/null pronouns, NPs) to refer to their antecedents in previous discourse. We will use large corpora and fine-grained annotation to investigate this in several language combinations: L1 English/Greek/Japanese - L2 Spanish as well as L1 Spanish/German - L2 English. Our ultimate goal is (i) to better understand the mechanisms underlying the language of adult bilingual learners of a second language (in relation to anaphora resolution); (i) to create new electronic resources (corpora) like COREFL (L1 Spanish/German-L2 English) and enlarge existing corpora like CEDEL2 (L1 English/Greek/Japanese-L2 Spanish) to investigate anaphora resolution.

Candidate’s profile: The candidate will be working in the following lines of research within the project:

  • Second Language Acquisition (SLA) / Bilingualism
  • Learner corpora
  • Anaphora resolution
