Yingnan Jin receives undergraduate research award!

Congratulations to Yingnan Jin on receiving a PCLB undergraduate research award! Her project will investigate online telicity effects in native Chinese speakers. Participants will read pairs of English atelic (He wrote the book, but did not finish it/*He wrote three books, but did not finish them) and telic (He wrote the book, and finished writing it/He wrote three books, and finished writing them.) pairs. We hypothesize that online processing and acceptability will covary with L2 English experience for the critical structure *He wrote three books, but did not finish them.
