Christina is interested in the real-time integration of contextual cues in language comprehension. Her recent research has addressed questions about domain restriction, presupposition, and focus-sensitivity in discourse processing, in order to investigate the broader question of how comprehenders resolve context-dependent meaning online. In addition, she is interested in ellipsis, in particular what ellipsis resolution can reveal about mental representations of syntactic, morphological, and discourse structure.
Andrea is a third year graduate student. He is broadly interested in issues at the semantics/pragmatics interface, and specifically on the different facets of scalarity in natural language. He is currently working on two main projects in this field: (a) the processing of adjectival scalar implicatures; (b) adjective modification and intensification, with respect to both degree and non degree expressions. In addition, he is carrying out an experimental project on resumptive pronouns and island rescuing effects in Italian.
