Research interests

 

 Jason Rothman is Professor of Linguistics at UiT and Adjunct Professor at Universidad Nebrija (Spain). Prof. Rothman primarily works on language acquisition and processing across the life span, especially in various types of bilingualism and multilingualism. He actively researches the mutually beneficial, bi-directional relationship between formal linguistic theory and experimental methods / evidence from psycho- and neurolinguistics. His work also investigates language induced / associated links to neurocognition in children and adults, especially in various bilingual / multilingual populations. 

He is director of the Psycholinguistics of Language Representation (PoLaR) lab at UiT: https://site.uit.no/polar/
