  1. Hello Niloufar,

    Just want to comment on your handout looks great and your explanations are clear. Supporting you!

  2. Dear fellow researchers,
    If you have any questions regarding this presentation please do not hesitate to write a comment or send an email.

    • Hola Niloufar,
      Loved your presentation on the expression of futurity in Spanish. Could you talk a bit more about your tasks: Picture naming and Preference perception? What instructions were participants given in the two tasks? Some examples of the tasks would also help.
      Thank you.

      • Dear Grace,
        Thank you for your interest and kind comment.

        For the first task, Picture Naming Task, participants were shown an image accompanied by two phrases including a subject, a verb in its infinitive form and an adverb (en el future or más trade). Participants were expected to choose one of the two given phrases to form a sentence using the image. For example, we showed them an image of pizzaz and gave them the following phrases:
        a) Yo hacer más tarde.
        b) Yo hacer en el futuro.
        For the second task, Preference Perception Task, Participants were asked to imagine a situation and pick the answer they would use in that situation. For each situation, three phrases were presented. A phrase using MF, one with PF and one ungrammatical answer.

  3. Hola Niloufar,
    ¡Felicidades! El tema y los resultados parecen muy interesantes. El poster también es muy organizado y se ve muy bien.

  4. Hello, Niloufar.
    I enjoyed reading and listening to your poster presentation. I was wondering how you chose your linguistic variables. What were you expecting in terms of differences for number of the subject, and declarative vs interrogative?
    Thank you!

    • Hello Cristina,

      Thank you for your kind comment and questions.
      We used Orozco’s studies (2005; 2007) as the database for our study. The mentioned linguistic variables have been investigated in his studies as well. According to his results, plural subjects trigger the use of MF and interrogative sentences trigger the use of PF. Therefore we also expected a higher production of MF in sentences with plural subjects and a higher production of PF in interrogative sentences.
      I hope I was able to answer your questions.
