Erin Pettibone is a doctoral candidate in Hispanic Linguistics at the University of Toronto. Her doctoral work investigates how children and adult learners map the meaning of adjectives to syntactic structure, exploring issues of word order, and the restrictive/non-restrictive contrast (Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarship to E. Pettibone). She is particularly interested in how developing pragmatic knowledge shapes the learning process. She is a member of the Toronto Complexity and Recursion Project (SSHRC grant to A. T. Pérez-Leroux and Y. Roberge), where she has been in charge of the bilingual recursion study.
