Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence

His scientific interests lie mostly in Linguistics, Language acquisition, Second-language acquisition, Cognitive psychology and Vocabulary. In his study, Second language is strongly linked to Natural language processing, which falls under the umbrella field of Linguistics. Nick C. Ellis interconnects Implicit learning, Cognitive science, Grammar, Unconscious mind and Psycholinguistics in the investigation of issues within Language acquisition.

In his research, Chunking is intimately related to Syntax, which falls under the overarching field of Grammar. His Psycholinguistics research includes elements of Vocabulary development and First language. The study incorporates disciplines such as Foreign language, Cognitive Mediation, Cognition, Learnability and Reading disability in addition to Vocabulary.

His most cited work include:

  • Frequency Effects in Language Processing: A Review with Implications for Theories of Implicit and Explicit Language Acquisition. (1211 citations)
  • AT THE INTERFACE: DYNAMIC INTERACTIONS OF EXPLICIT AND IMPLICIT LANGUAGE KNOWLEDGE (515 citations)
  • Sequencing in SLA: Phonological Memory, Chunking and Points of Order. (497 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Language acquisition, Cognitive psychology and Artificial intelligence. His research brings together the fields of Psycholinguistics and Linguistics. His Second-language acquisition research focuses on subjects like Applied linguistics, which are linked to Language and Communication Technologies.

The various areas that Nick C. Ellis examines in his Language acquisition study include Associative learning, Cognitive science, Language identification and Comprehension approach. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Salience, Cognition, Reading, Vocabulary and Spelling. His study looks at the relationship between Artificial intelligence and topics such as Natural language processing, which overlap with Connectionism and Lexis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Linguistics (52.33%)
  • Second-language acquisition (27.46%)
  • Language acquisition (27.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Linguistics (52.33%)
  • Second-language acquisition (27.46%)
  • Artificial intelligence (20.73%)

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

Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Artificial intelligence, Language acquisition and Natural language processing are his primary areas of study. His work on Linguistics deals in particular with Verb, Construction grammar, Grammar, Corpus linguistics and First language. His Corpus linguistics research includes themes of Applied linguistics and Spoken language.

His Second-language acquisition study combines topics in areas such as Developmental linguistics, Comprehension approach, Cognitive psychology, Computational linguistics and Psycholinguistics. His Language acquisition research incorporates elements of Language identification and Phrase. His work in Natural language processing addresses issues such as Semantics, which are connected to fields such as Syntax.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An Academic Formulas List: New Methods in Phraseology Research (358 citations)
  • A Transdisciplinary Framework for SLA in a Multilingual World (357 citations)
  • Second language acquisition. (237 citations)

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

  • Linguistics
  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence

Nick C. Ellis mostly deals with Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Language acquisition, Cognitive psychology and Verb. His research on Linguistics frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Cognitive linguistics. His Second-language acquisition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Computational linguistics, Natural language processing and Academic writing.

His study in Language acquisition is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Language transfer, Comprehension approach, Cognition, Psycholinguistics and Artificial intelligence. In Cognitive psychology, Nick C. Ellis works on issues like Grammar, which are connected to Generative grammar. His studies deal with areas such as Associative learning, Contingency and Construction grammar as well as Verb.
