What our research is about


Combining the methods of theoretical and experimental linguistics, our project investigates how grammatical means, contextual cues and intonation interact in the interpretation -- and recurrent ambiguity -- of sentences containing quantity-denoting words like every, few, or three. Hungarian language is a prominent empirical area of our research, as Hungarian is highly sensitive in terms of word order and intonation to both to the interpretive options available to phrases containing quantity-denoting words and to their relation to the current context.
