Join us in congratulating Linnaea Stockall, Napoleon Katsos (University of Cambridge) and Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga, who have been awarded a British Academy research grant for £9,991 over one year (2014-15) for their project 'Learning about the world through generic statements: a cross-linguistic perspective', where they will explore how adult native speakers of two languages with distinct ways of expressing generic statements, English and Greek, process statements like 'tigers have stripes' or 'ducks lay eggs' and how young native speakers of English learn their meaning.
