The Language Acquisition Lab is seeking responsible, highly motivated students with an interest in language and children to assist with our research projects during Spring 2023. We do experiments on word learning, sentence processing, and linguistic adaptation in toddlers, preschoolers, and adults. We need students who are interested in learning both about online data collection (e.g., via Zoom appointment) and in-lab data collection.
