In a variety of studies, we are investigating how grammatical properties of a language, such as grammatical gender, number or classifiers, are represented in the language processing system. 

Recently, we investigated a couple of non-western languages such as Konso (gender-number interaction) and Mandarin Chinese (classifiers). We also studied the transfer of grammatical gender properties from a first to a second language with Dutch-English bilinguals.
