Welcome

 

My name is Victoria Mateu [vɪk.ˈtɔ.ɹi.ə mə.ˈte.ʊ]. I'm an Assistant Professor of Hispanic Linguistics at the UCLA Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

 

My primary area of interest is first language acquisition (particularly Spanish morphosyntax). I am also interested in other populations (Spanish heritage speakers and L2 Learners) theoretical syntaxlanguage processing, and word prosody and the insights that cross-linguistic and acquisition data can provide on these topics.
