Linguistics Professor Alice Harris has been awarded a new three-year research grant from the National Science Foundation for her project titled, “Perception and Production of Clitics”. The purpose of the grant is to analyze—in collaboration with Arthur Samuel of Stony Brook University and the Basque Center for Cognition, Brain, and Language—the processing and production differences among clitics in different positions, and to test whether differences are the same cross-linguistically. This is part of a larger project that will also include differences among affixes and will compare affixes with clitics.
The grant will also support her continued fieldwork on the endangered Caucasian language Udi.
