NWO Veni project 'Try to see it my way: when do speakers consider the listener’s perspective?'
Jorrig Vogels has been awarded a Veni grant for talented researchers for his research about ‘Are people egocentric when they talk?’. This project aims to provide a more complete explanation for why speakers appear to adapt their language use to their addressee’s needs in some cases, but not in others. Clever experimental designs are used to reveal when referential choices in language production include a consideration of the listener’s perspective. Link to project website

3M: Meer kansen Met Meertaligheid
The NWO project 3M focuses on developing (through development research), testing and evaluating a new approach and new didactic tools for multilingual education (through intervention research). All learning tools developed within the project will be made available to schools. Additionally, effect research into (language) attitudes will be conducted. Link to project website.
NWO Veni Learning language from expectations
What pronouns such as “he" or “she" refer to, changes from sentence to sentence. This project applies the learning theory of Rescorla and Wagner to the acquisition of pronouns. The central idea behind this theory is that children learn from incorrect predictions. The project will combine experiments, corpus research and computational modelling.
