About Cecile McKee

Professor, Linguistics Department

Director, Developmental Psycholinguistics Laboratory, Linguistics Department

Associate Dean for Research, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences

My teaching emphasizes cross-listed courses. With student and community volunteers, I participate in festivals and outreach to K-12 schools. My research concerns children syntactic development. Over the years, my research agenda has emphasized three branches: cross-linguistic comparisons of language structures, children's processing mechanisms, and developmental language impairments. I'm interested in questions about both universals and particulars that are evident during children's convergence on the adult grammar. My current project on fluency and planning is funded by NSF. My main collaborators are Merrill Garrett (retired from Pyschology, U. of Arizona), Sam Supalla (SERSP, U. of Arizona), Dana McDaniel (Linguistics, U. of Southern Maine), Sigridur Sigurjónsdóttir (Icelandic Linguistics, U. of Reykavijk, Iceland), and Maria Emiliani (USL, Imola, Italy).
