Ayaka Sugawara （菅原 彩加） Last update: February, 2017
I'm a lecturer of linguistics at Mie University in Mie, Japan (For some reason an "associate professor" is an official title specified by the university though I am not tenured). My main interests are first language acquisition, semantics, pragmatics, interaction of prosody and semantics, and sentence processing.
I finished my PhD dissertation "The role of Question-Answer Congruence (QAC) in child language and adult sentence processing" at MIT in 2016.
I received my B.A. and M.A. in English linguistics from the University of Tokyo.
