    Boon or Burden? The Role of Compositional Meaning in Figurative Language Processing and Acquisition.Mila Vulchanova, Evelyn Milburn, Valentin Vulchanov & Giosuè Baggio - 2019 - Journal of Logic, Language and Information 28 (2):359-387.
    We critically address current theories of figurative language, focusing on the role of literal or compositional meaning in the interpretation of non-literal expressions, including idioms and metaphors. Specifically, we formulate and discuss the processing hypothesis that compositional meaning may either facilitate or impede the recovery or construction of the intended figurative meaning depending on multiple factors, and in particular, on the expression’s decomposability and on the “strength” of semantic relations between the compositional and figurative meanings. As a case study, we (...)

    Shrinking Your Deictic System: How Far Can You Go?Mila Vulchanova, Pedro Guijarro-Fuentes, Jacqueline Collier & Valentin Vulchanov - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    Languages around the world differ in terms of the number of adnominal and pronominal demonstratives they require, as well as the factors that impact on their felicitous use. Given this cross-linguistic variation in deictic demonstrative terms, and the features that determine their felicitous use, an open question is how this is accommodated within bilingual cognition and language. In particular, we were interested in the extent to which bilingual language exposure and practice might alter the way in which a bilingual is (...)
