Variability and Consistency in Early Language Learning: The Wordbank Project

Date and Time: 
Thursday, November 29, 2018. 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM
Meeting Location: 
Building 420, Room 126
Workshop: 
Cognition and Language Workshop
Meeting Description: 

Every typically developing child learns to talk, but children vary tremendously in how and when they do so. What predicts this variability? And which aspects of early language learning are consistent across the world’s languages and cultures? We use data from tens of thousands of children learning dozens of different languages to create a data-driven picture of universals and variation in early language learning.

Michael Frank is professor of psychology and, by courtesy, of linguistics at Stanford.
