One of the 16 Wallenberg Scholar grants awarded by the Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation, goes to Marianne Gullberg, professor of psycholinguistics at Lund University, Director of Lund University Humanities Lab, and a PI in the CCL. This five-year grant will go towards further exploring how adult speakers who know more than one language handle their languages in speech and gesture in real-time production and comprehension, and also to examine the effect of gestures on language learning.
