153.Linguistic Knowledge in Polyglots

Outline Periods
To elucidate the knowledge that polyglots, including bilinguals and multilinguals, have about the languages they speak, our team conducts interdisciplinary research on their linguistic behavior in terms of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and also on such factors as psychological processes, social and cultural background, and identity, with a focus on both the acquisition and the loss of this knowledge over time, as well as the influence of formal education.
