Publications

In my current PhD research, I use large-scale corpora to examine how similarity between learners’ native language and their target foreign language affects the way they learn the vocabulary of the foreign language.

Below, you can find a selection of some of my publications. If you prefer, you can see a more comprehensive listing on Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and Academia.edu.
