Shira is the lab manager of the Language Learning and Processing Lab. She has a B.A. degree in Cognitive Science and Philosophy and a M.A. degree in Cognitive Science, both from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Shira is interested in examining questions of typology and diachronic-linguistics using empirical methods. Specifically, investigating the means by which certain cognitive and conversational constraints can explain the common patterns of linguistic change, and as a result, the structural properties that different languages share.
