Holger Hopp

Holger Hopp

Professor of English Linguistics, University of Braunschweig


In my research, I am interested in the psycholinguistics of multilingualism. From a formal grammatical perspective, I study how different areas of Interlanguage grammars interact in bilingual comprehension and production. In addition, my research looks at cognitive factors and individual differences in bilingual language processing.
