About our lab

What we do:

Language and cognition relationship is intricate and elusive. In our lab we aim to contribute to the understanding of this relationship, taking into consideration another aspect of human nature, that of culture. Culture, in a broad sense, seems to have a lot to do with the way we look at the world and decide to talk about our lived experiences. These settings of a linguistic community does a lot more than just tweaking the grammatical structures of a language. we look at some of these issues in case of the North East Indian languages, using psycholinguistic tool. Some of the themes we are currently engaged in are:
  • Bilingualism 
  • Motion verbs 
  • language processing and sensory perception
  • figurative language processing
