Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Grammar
  • Syntax

Lydia White spends much of her time researching Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Grammar, Language transfer and Language assessment. Her study in Linguistics focuses on Verb, Universal grammar, Developmental linguistics, First language and Agreement. Her studies in Universal grammar integrate themes in fields like Emergent grammar, Generative second-language acquisition and Interface hypothesis.

Her research investigates the link between Developmental linguistics and topics such as Language acquisition that cross with problems in Principles and parameters. Her Second-language acquisition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Language proficiency and Artificial intelligence. Her study in Grammar is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Language development and Redundancy.

Her most cited work include:

  • Second Language Acquisition and Universal Grammar (864 citations)
  • Universal Grammar and second language acquisition (550 citations)
  • Missing Surface Inflection or Impairment in second language acquisition? Evidence from tense and agreement (537 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Lydia White focuses on Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Universal grammar, Grammar and Language acquisition. Her research in Interlanguage, First language, Theoretical linguistics, Comprehension approach and Definiteness are components of Linguistics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Developmental linguistics, Language transfer, Linguistic competence and Emergent grammar, Generative grammar in addition to Second-language acquisition.

Her Language transfer research incorporates elements of Second-language attrition and Language assessment. Her Universal grammar study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subjacency, Cognitive science, Subject and Critical period hypothesis. Her research integrates issues of Language proficiency and Inflection in her study of Grammar.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Linguistics (78.90%)
  • Second-language acquisition (53.21%)
  • Universal grammar (21.10%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Linguistics (78.90%)
  • Second-language acquisition (53.21%)
  • Definiteness (8.26%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Lydia White spends much of her time researching Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Definiteness, Turkish and Grammar. Her studies link Representation with Linguistics. Lydia White usually deals with Second-language acquisition and limits it to topics linked to Language acquisition and Linguistic description, Linguistic universal and Developmental psychology.

Her Turkish research incorporates themes from Substitution, Second language, Interlanguage and Representation. Her Grammar study combines topics in areas such as Interface hypothesis, First language and Serbian. The Universal grammar study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive science, Linguistic competence and Critical period hypothesis.

Between 2008 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Second language acquisition at the interfaces (111 citations)
  • Evidence for the Fundamental Difference Hypothesis or Not?: Island Constraints Revisited. (28 citations)
  • Linguistic Theory, Universal Grammar, and Second Language Acquisition (27 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Linguistics
  • Syntax
  • Grammar

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Second-language acquisition, Linguistics, Interface hypothesis, Inflection and Semantics. Particularly relevant to Universal grammar is her body of work in Second-language acquisition. Her studies deal with areas such as Syntax, Linguistic system, Cognitive science, Generative second-language acquisition and Phonology as well as Interface hypothesis.

Lydia White combines subjects such as Truncation, Pragmatics, Rule-based machine translation and Applied mathematics with her study of Inflection. Her Semantics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Syntax, Focus, Comprehension and Trace. In general Grammar, her work in Linguistic universal is often linked to Constraint linking many areas of study.
