Title:
The syntax and semantics of reorganized language and its neuronal architecture
Duration:
01/07/2009 to 31/12/2013
Abstract / short description:
Language is generally lateralized to the left hemisphere, however, children with early damage in the left hemisphere are able to reorganize language in the right hemisphere. Little work has been done on the characterization of this 'reorganized language' (RS) at any level of linguistic description. This project aims to investigate and describe reorganized language, making reference to linguistic hypotheses and methods, and thus to contribute towards the study of adaptivity in language. Imaging procedures will be used to localize language function in the brain.
