A Longitudinal Investigation into Lexical Retrieval and Oral Output Behaviour in Older and Younger Adults | PI: Dr Tess Fitzpatrick
This project will contribute to our understanding of the changes in individuals’ control and use of language through the life span, and specifically of language attrition in older people. The research team will work on a subset of an existing dataset to produce fully informed and focused predictions of lexical retrieval behaviour in a healthy ageing population, against which the language behaviour of individuals with Dementia of Alzheimer’s Type (DAT) can be assessed.
Discourses of Specialness: An Interdisciplinary Approach to the Anglo-American ‘Special Relationship’ (1950-1960) | PI: Professor Nuria Lorenzo-Dus
The Anglo-American special relationship still captures great political, popular and media imagination, particularly in Britain. Why does it do so? This interdisciplinary pilot project applies quantitative and qualitative methods in Discourse Analysis to archival and media records of Anglo-American relations in order to demonstrate the vital but hitherto analytically neglected role of language in the development and sustenance of a special relationship.
