Grammar & Cognition





  • Margriet Heim (ACLC), external researcher
    project: Improving communication between non-speaking people with a multiple handicap and their social network
  • Margreet van Koert (ACLC), postdoc (FGW/FMG)
    project: Improving English at school.


This research group focuses on grammatical knowledge as part of the general cognitive system. How do general cognitive processes shape and constrain grammar and what can we infer on the basis of our internal and external knowledge of grammar about the role language as a cognitive domain? In particular, the research groups focuses on language acquisition, language change, language variation and executive functioning and the way these aspects interact.
