What are the features of the human brain allowing for the existence and re-creation of language? How does the environment contribute to its development? Once language networks have stabilized, how do they shape their perception and production of a variety of stimuli? We draw insights from current and classical research in many disciplines (e.g., linguistic theory & laboratory linguistics, experimental & developmental psychology, neuropsychology, neuroimaging, computer modeling) to shed light on a few key psycholinguistic issues ranging from phonology to semantics. 

  • Class 1 - Introduction: course structure; main features of language; main theories about language development; sub-fields
  • Class 2 - Language evolution and the evolution of language. Comparison with other species, evolution of humans and why and when language appeared, pidgin and creole, emergent sign languages, language change, experimental studies of language evolution
  • Class 3 - Language-specific perception: generating and testing alternative models of language-specific influence on perception
  • Class 4 - Word Learning: linguistic, perceptual & memory constraints on word learning across development
  • Class 5 - Understanding and producing words (adults): Classic models and bilingualism.
  • Class 6  - Second language acquisition
  • Class 7 - The Acquisition of syntax
  • Class 8 - Interactions across linguistic levels and beyond; bottom-up, top-down, and mixed models of language.
  • Class 9 - Reading and writing in the brain, different writing systems and their effect on cognitive and linguistic processing and development
  • Class 10 - The relationship between oral language acquisition, reading readiness and academic success
  • Class 11 - Language in a social context: the role of peers in language development
  • Class 12 - Using linguistic theory to understand language impairment: the example of phonological deficits
