Readership: Students and researchers in linguistics, psychology, and cognitive science.
Edited by Mila Vulchanova, Department of Modern Foreign Languages, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and Emile van der Zee, School of Psychology, University of Lincoln
Mila Vulchanova received her DrArtium degree in theoretical linguistics at the Norwegian University of Science & Technology in 1996. Her professional expertise covers a wide range of topics, including linguistic theory, lexical semantics, language and cognition, spatial categorization and language, language acquisition, developmental disorders, extreme language talent, formal syntax and diachronic grammar.
She is an elected member of The Royal Norwegian Society of Science (DKNVS) and was a fellow in residence at The Centre for Advanced Study (VLAC) at The Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts (KVAB). Currently Vulchanova leads the NTNU Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab, which conducts experimental research in language skills in children and adults, language acquisition and language processing.
Emile van der Zee is Principal Lecturer in the School of Psychology, University of Lincoln. He is the editor, together with Laura Carlson, of Functional Features in Language and Space (OUP 2005) and, with Jon Slack, of Representing Direction in Language and Space (OUP 2003).
