Lauren Fromont, Ph.D.

Présentation

Je viens de terminer mon doctorat en Sciences Biomédicales, option orthophonie. J’ai travaillé sur la coarticulation longue distance en français [9] lors de ma maîtrise en Sciences de la parole à University College London. J’ai ensuite conduit un projet au groupe de recherche multi-sensorielle de l’Université Pompeu Fabra, visant à comprendre le rôle de la prosodie et des gestes dans le traitement de la syntaxe [3-4]. Mon projet, dirigé par Phaedra Royle et Karsten Steinhauer, se concentre sur le traitement des catégories syntaxiques et des indices lexico-sémantiques, dans les modalités écrite et orale, chez les locuteurs natifs et les apprenants du français québécois. Ma thèse de doctorat proposera une réévaluation des modèles de compréhension du langage.
