What’s in a grammar? A microcomparative study of negation in American Englishes

In contexts where people speak different dialects of the same language, how much overlap is there between the dialects, and what are the genuine grammatical differences? This study explores this question through a series of three experiments examining how people from three different dialects understand a variety of negative sentences (e.g., I didn't eat nothing). The results will contribute to our understanding of linguistic diversity.

Participants will sit at a computer and have their eye movements tracked by a camera as they read or listen to sentences and look at pictures on the screen.
