Language Acquisition

Psycholinguistics Lab meeting. Fridays, 12:00 - 1:30. Linguistics Dept seminar room, 1108B Marie Mount Hall.

On October 10th we'll have a double-header featuring Kate Harrigan, discussing her work on how children learn and understand very-hard-to-observe words, such as "want", "think", and "hope". Then Ellen Lau will talk about some of her recent work on ERPs and predictive processes ("Events vs. Entities with ERPs").

All welcome.
