The Reading Lab targets a range of areas in psycholinguistics and corpus linguistics, with a focus on:

  • cognitive and socio-demographic predictors of literacy and reading comprehension in adults across languages;
  • individual differences in word recognition and text reading among low-literacy and typical readers;
  • experimental and classroom studies of word learning and vocabulary acquisition;
  • processing of morphologically complex words;
  • emotional and sensorimotor components of language production and comprehension;
  • aging and language;
  • creation of data resources for psycholinguistic and computational-linguistic research

Our research paradigms include eye-tracking, behavioral studies, large-scale norming studies, and quantitative analyses of written and spoken corpora.
