Language & Learning Lab

Research

The research interests of Lab members focus on how the developing brain learns spoken and written language. Much of our research consists of cross-linguistic investigations of normal and impaired reading acquisition based on topics such as: meta-linguistic awareness (phonology; derivational morphology), orthographic coding, bilingual/second language acquisition and dialect.



Our external collaborators for this work are:

Professor Séverine Casalis (SCALab, Université Lille 3)

Professor Pascale Colé (LPC, Aix-Marseille Université)

 

One recent application of our research has been the design of a language measure suitable for identifying the early communication difficulties associated with social disadvantage. The observational language measure for use by early years practitioners is called e-LIPS, which stands for Early Language in Preschool Settings. The project has been a partnership with Fife Education and Learning Service.

 

We are also part of the Transforming Childhoods
 research network at the University of Dundee.
