    My main interest is sentence processing in healthy as well as brain-damaged individuals. The topic explored currently is how word order and syntactic frequency simultaneously affect sentence processing. Using EEG and behavioural measures, I am investigating comprehension and production by healthy and aphasic individuals in Standard Indonesian (SI). The aim of the series of investigations is to identify, to what extent, syntactic frequency may affect comprehension and production of sentences with derived word order (e.g. passives, object relatives, and object clefts), and whether this frequency effect can "protect" typically impaired structures in individuals with aphasia.
