Kamil is trained in sociolinguistics, field linguistics, laboratory phonology and language acquisition. Multilingualism is his newest research interest. In our project, he investigates L3 Norwegian and L3 Polish speech. He tries to map the foreign-language accents with social and cultural parameters of the speakers.
Sylwiusz Żychliński (PhD) is an assistant professor at the Faculty of English at Adam Mickiewicz University. His research areas mostly involve aspects of Polish-English comparative syntax, though recently he has started exploring topics related to the second / third language acquisition of syntax.
