The online processing of prosodic and contextual cues to meaning: evidence from language learning
This project proposes to investigate how non-native speakers process non-literal meaning and how they use prosodic and contextual information for that. Using eye-tracking measures, we are particulary interested in how and when natives and non-natives access the non-literal interpretation of an utterance, how this access is modulated by the prosodic information that can be accompanied or not by reinforcing or incongruent contextual information, and the impact of individual cognitive abilties in this processing.
