[Article] Assignment of Grammatical Gender in Heritage Greek
I am very pleased to announce that Assignment of Grammatical Gender in Heritage Greek is now available on Frontiers in Psychology — Language Sciences.
This study investigates the acquisition of grammatical gender in Heritage Greek as acquired by children (6–8 years of age) and adolescents (15–18 years) growing up in Adelaide, South Australia. The determiner elicitation task from Varlokosta (2005) was employed to assess the role of morphological and semantic cues when it comes to gender assignment for real and novel nouns.

I have a BA in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics from the University of Cyprus, and I am completing an Erasmus Mundus MSc in Clinical Linguistics. I am a member of the Cyprus Acquisition Team and I am currently enrolled at the University of Potsdam in Germany.
My BA thesis project explored impaired syntax in Cypriot Greek-speaking populations with neurogenic conditions, with a focus on the interaction between dialectal micro-variation and language breakdown. My MSc thesis project is concerned with the development of language-appropriate screening tools for developmental language disorders.
Beyond Linguistics, I am also an active advocate for and occasional contributor to Cultural and Knowledge Commons and of Free-Libre Software.
