Julian PineDate/Time: July 15, 2pm-3pm (Session 2)

Presenter(s): Julian Pine

Title: Painting a more detailed picture of children's early language development

Abstract: In this talk I will describe how a variety of experimental techniques have been used in recent research to provide a more detailed picture of children’s early language development. I will explain how work using preferential looking and pointing has revealed early sensitivity to active and passive word order, and how work using sentence elicitation has revealed areas of strength and weakness in young children’s knowledge of verb morphology and Wh- question formation. I will also suggest some ways in which these techniques could be adapted by language practitioners and used to paint a more detailed picture of the linguistic abilities of individual children.
