Carol Madden-Lombardi is Senior Researcher at the CNRS, working in the Cognition, Action, and Sensorimotor Plasticity Laboratory at the University of Bourgogne in Dijon. Her research employs behavioural and neuroscience methodologies to investigate the embodied and modality-specific nature of language representations.
Michael Meeuwis is Professor of African Languages at Ghent University. His research focuses on the history of colonial and missionary linguistics in Central Africa and on the study of the grammar of languages in the region. His most recent book is A Grammatical Overview of Lingála (Lincom, 2020).
Adeline Patard is Maître de Conferences at Caen University, where she teaches medieval French, diachronic linguistics, and corpus linguistics.
