Jekaterina Mažara

 

I am a PhD student in the ACQDIV project. My main interests lie in modelling of learning processes and the exploration of quantitative methods for the study of language acquisition in longitudinal corpora. 

Some of my core research interests are:

- acquisition of tense and aspect morphology 

- modelling of acquisition rates of various linguistic structures 

- measuring the increase of flexibility in children's production

- visualization of acquisition processes

 

 

I am also project coordinator in the SNF funded project Documentation and acquisition of Romansh Tuatschin. One of the main goals of the project is the collection, transcription, and annotation of a longitudinal audio-visual corpus of 6 Tuatschin-speaking children between the ages of 2;0 and 4;0. My main responsibilities in the project lie in data collection and corpus management as well as overseeing the segmentation and transcription processes.
