How do children become language experts?

18 May, 2015

“In my research I try to incorporate social cues like eye gaze and gesture into a model of child language acquisition. I spend most of my time trying to build a representation of parent child interaction, using authentic data. To me the most exciting research question is how do children learn language and how do they become experts on disambiguation.” Kristina Nilsson Björkenstam
