Second and Third Language Research Group – FANT

Second and Third Language Research Group – FANT

FANT consists of three researchers with PhDs in second and/or third language acquisition, in Norwegian, English and French, respectively. We have expertise in the acquisition of additional languages in children and adults, covering both in immersion and non-immersion contexts. 

The group is currently working on a large project investigating the acquisition of syntactic structure and word order in a third language using experimental methods. 

The researchers are also members of AcqVA, and all are affiliated with the Trondheim branch of Bilingualism Matters, Flere språk til flere Trondheim.
