      Cross-Language Modulation of Visual Attention Span: An Arabic-French-Spanish Comparison in Skilled Adult Readers 

      Awadh, Faris H.R.; Phénix, Thierry; Antzaka, Alexia; Lallier, Marie; Carreiras, Manuel; Valdois, Sylviane (Frontiers in Psychology, 2016)
      In delineating the amount of orthographic information that can be processed in parallel during a single fixation, the visual attention (VA) span acts as a key component of the reading system. Previous studies focused on ...

      Cross-linguistic adaptations of The Comprehensive Aphasia Test: Challenges and solutions 

      Fyndanis, Valantis; Lind, Marianne; Varlokosta, Spyridoula; Kambanaros, Maria; Soroli, Efstathia; Ceder, Klaudia; Grohmann, Kleanthes K.; Rofes, Adrià; Gram Simonsen, Hanne; Bjekić, Jovana; Gavarró, Anna; Kuvač Kraljević, Jelena; Martínez-Ferreiro, Silvia; Munarriz, Amaia; Pourquie, Marie; Vuksanović, Jasmina; Zakariás, Lilla; Howard, David (Clinical Linguistics & Phonetics, 2017)
      Comparative research on aphasia and aphasia rehabilitation is challenged by the lack of comparable assessment tools across different languages. In English, a large array of tools is available, while in most other languages, ...

      Cross-Linguistic Differences in Bilinguals’ Fundamental Frequency Ranges 

      Ordin, Mikhail; Mennen, Ineke (Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research, 2017)
      Purpose We investigated cross-linguistic differences in fundamental frequency range (FFR) in Welsh-English bilingual speech. This is the first study that reports gender-specific behavior in switching FFRs across languages ...

      Cross-linguistic differences in the use of durational cues for the segmentation of a novel language 

      Ordin, Mikhail; Polyanskaya, Leona; Laka Mugarza, Itziar; Nespor, Marina (Memory & Cognition, 2017)
      It is widely accepted that duration can be exploited as phonological phrase final lengthening in the segmentation of a novel language, i.e., in extracting discrete constituents from continuous speech. The use of final ...

      Cross-linguistic interactions influence reading development in bilinguals: a comparison between early balanced French-Basque and Spanish-Basque bilingual children 

      Lallier, Marie; Acha, Joana; Carreiras, Manuel (Developmental Science, 2016)
      This study investigates whether orthographic consistency and transparency of languages have an impact on the development of reading strategies and reading sub-skills (i.e. phonemic awareness and visual attention span) in ...

      Cross-linguistic transfer in bilinguals reading in two alphabetic orthographies: The grain size accommodation hypothesis 

      Lallier, Marie; Carreiras, Manuel (Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 2018)
      Reading acquisition is one of the most complex and demanding learning processes faced by children in their first years of schooling. If reading acquisition is challenging in one language, how is it when reading is acquired ...

      Cross-modal noise compensation in audiovisual words 

      Baart, Martijn; Armstrong, Blair C.; Martin, Clara D.; Frost, Ram; Carreiras, Manuel (Scientific Reports, 2017)
      Perceiving linguistic input is vital for human functioning, but the process is complicated by the fact that the incoming signal is often degraded. However, humans can compensate for unimodal noise by relying on simultaneous ...

      Deaf readers benefit from lexical feedback during orthographic processing 

      Gutierrez-Sigut, Eva; Vergara-Martínez, Marta; Perea, Manuel (Scientific Reports, 2019)
      It has been proposed that poor reading abilities in deaf readers might be related to weak connections between the orthographic and lexical-semantic levels of processing. Here we used event related potentials (ERPs), known ...
