Hello, my name is

Anna Prysłopska

Reseacher at the University of Stuttgart

Cognitive scientist and language expert with interest in psycholinguistics, semantics and pragmatics. Passionate about innovation in experimental paradigms, advances in eye-tracking and data analysis. Open science and reproducible research enthusiast. Typography, photography and art lover. Feminist, chiseling away at the patriarchy.

I'm a post-doctoral researcher at the Linguistics Institute at the University of Stuttgart, formerly a researcher at the SFB 833 in the project A1 (Maienborn). I study how people infer agency and deliberate intension in written language comprehension. Specifically, why how being friendly is different from being confused or being blond. In addition, I investigate the aspectual properties of motion verbs such as run (where to?), sail (how long?), climb (how often?).

Want to run a linguistic experiment?

Check out my ready to go templates, including an acceptability judgment task, forced-choice experiment (both programmed for OnExp 1.2), E-Prime 3.0 and PCIbex self-paced reading experiments, and an Experiment Builder eye-tracking during reading experiment.

Are you annotating a corpus?

I made a shiny app called COSMAS2 Reader which transforms the output of a COSMAS2 text file into a neat table for easier annotation. You can find it on shinyapps.io or grab it on GitHub. Try it out with this text file.

Read my work and hear me speak

I enjoy writing papers and communicating my science at conferences and workshops. I welcome opportunities to collaborate. Transparency and reproducibility are a cornerstone of scientific progress. Feel free to ask me about my data and analysis scripts.
