Abstract: This interdisciplinary project brings together researchers from the fields of ELF, interpreting, translation and neuropsychology in order to gain a better understanding of the actual cognitive demands associated with processing ELF as compared to Standard English. The mixed-method approach it adopts includes audio and video recordings, eye tracking and screen logging, psycho-physiological measurements (e.g. heartrate and EEG), stimulated-recall commentaries of processes, product analyses and online surveys of professional translators and interpreters. The various disciplinary perspectives allow a rich description of the challenges ELF presents to both language experts and non-experts. Insights into the relationships between expertise, cognitive load and stress when dealing with ELF input will be incorporated into undergraduate, graduate and professional development programmes in a wide variety of disciplines and domains to better prepare the citizens of the future for this global phenomenon.
