Roeper, Hartman and Oiry – Language Acquisition

The Language Acquisition Lab is directed by Tom Roeper and co-directed by Jeremy Hartman and Magda Oiry. Research studies how children acquire language, including first, second, and bilingual acquisition. Our experiments explore the questions generated by core areas of linguistic theory, including syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The results, in turn, shape those theories and inform our understanding of language and the human mind.
