Overview

The Martí i Franquès COFUND Doctoral Fellowships Programme (MFP) is a redesign of the existing MF programme, offering 100 doctoral contracts (in four editions: 2017, 2018 and 2020, 2021) at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV). The programme is uniquely shaped to offer the best training stemming from the "triple i" principles of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions: international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral.

In order to achieve these goals, we combine leading research groups at URV with scientific partners from world-class institutions, such that the candidates are be exposed to interdisciplinary training as well as mentoring from the industrial sector.

Through MFP, URV is in a unique position to offer the best conditions for doctoral training, based on the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (guaranteed by the HR award that URV has received in 2014), as well as the EU Principles for Innovative Doctorate Training.

Description of the research project (reference: 2020MFP-COFUND-19)

The aim of this project is to investigate the notions of acceptability and grammaticality through running various types of acceptability judgment tasks.

Acceptability judgments are a reliable tool in linguistic research that can provide valuable insights into grammar, eventually giving rise to what has been called the evidential base of linguistics. Although acceptability judgments are robust and reliable indicators of one`s perception of her/his linguistic repertoire, human cognition is fallible to processing biases and heuristics of various types. The ways these biases impact acceptability judgments are still to be determined.

This project will address this question through administering acceptability and other types of tasks in neurotypical populations. The project will deal with various grammatical representations, also taking into account the interests and competences of the selected fellow.

Emphasis will be given to ensuring a gender balance in the implementation of this project. The supervisors commit to promote gender equality in the research team that will host the fellow, both in terms of human resources, but also in terms of content. Moreover, gender will be included as one of the possible predictors/factors in the analysis of the results.
