Undergraduate teaching

This year, I teach a new course on developmental language disorders that runs in Sembester 2. The UG version of the course is called Language Pathology and the PG version of the course is Developmental Language Disorders. I also co-teach the Second Language Acquisition module (UG & PG versions) with Prof. Antonella Sorace and the new Research Methods for Developmental Linguistics module (only PG version) with Mits Ota.

Office hours

Tuesday 16:00-17:00 Thursday 16:00-17:00

Current research interests

My research focuses on cross-linguistic aspects of acquisition and processing in typically-developing monolingual and bilingual children and in children with language impairment. My research addresses questions such as the following: What is the relationship between production and (on-line) comprehension/processing in impaired and unimpaired monolingual and bilingual children? How is this relationship affected by cross-linguistic differences in the target grammatical system? How can the comparison between different modalities inform us about the underlying nature of development and processing? I am also interested in the interplay between cognitive abilities, such as executive functions, and language abilities in typically-developing and language impaired children. If you are interested in pursuing a PhD on these or similar topics, please e-mail me. For more details, please visit my Academia website: https://edinburgh.academia.edu/VickyChondrogianni
