The Centre for Comparative Psycholinguistics conducts research into the psychological and social foundations of language in diverse languages and speakers. We try to understand how the human mind and brain makes sense of speech and text, and how language interacts with other aspects of cognition like vision and emotions. We also research how language processing changes in different real-world contexts and according to individuals’ backgrounds, personalities and ideologies.

The Centre is hosted by the Department of Linguistics and is located in the first floor of Assiniboia Hall. Dr. Juhani Järvikivi of the Department of Linguistics is the Director of the CCP. New and returning students can find current experiments and available timeslots using the Linguistics Sign-Up System (SONA).
