Egocentrism in languages

Vogels works at the Centre for Languge and Cognition in Groningen (CLCG). His research addresses the question whether people take the perspective of the listener into account when they talk. By studying choices in language use, researchers try to figure out when people speak in an egocentric way and when they do not. The personal Veni grants are worth up to a maximum of € 250,000 and enable talented researchers who have just completed a PhD to conduct research of their own choice.

Veni grants

The Veni grant is part of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme run by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the universities. It’s a grant for talented researches who just completed a PhD and show great potential within their field of academic research. In total, 154 Veni grants have been awarded throughout The Netherlands.
