Second Language Learning
I'm currently working with Dr. Cynthia Fisher in the Language Acquisition Lab. I'm currently working on a project investigating how children and adults come to use verbs in different kinds of sentences. Verbs vary in their likelihood or probability of appearing in different sentence structures and these verb-specific ‘preferences’ are known as verb bias. The project that I'm currently working on tried to find out how children and adults learn such verb bias, and how this bias can be altered by their language experience.
