Welcome to the Purdue Bilingualism Lab

Research in the Purdue Bilingualism Lab (PBL) focuses on all aspects of bilingualism, broadly defined.  We have a particular interest in phonetics and phonology, psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics. Our research explores bilingual behaviors, as well as the underlying cognitive mechanisms that govern such behavior. In other words, we're interested in what bilinguals do and how they do it. Projects in the Purdue Bilingualism Lab address both highly proficient bilinguals and those who are developing proficiency in their second language. Moreover, we seek to leverage bilingualism as a unique tool to inform our  understanding of general linguistic theories in ways that would be otherwise unavailable through studying monolingual performance.
