Elly Koutamanis studies child bilingualism. She is interested in how the two languages of bilingual children influence each other on the level of vocabulary. Do bilingual children have two separate ‘dictionaries’ (lexicons) in their mind, or do the two languages form one system? When and how do we find the words of one language influencing the other? In her PhD project, Elly Koutamanis studies the language production and language comprehension of children growing up with multiple languages. She also has expertise in the acquisition of grammatical structures by children with different native languages.
