Developmental Linguistics Research Group
The Developmental Linguistics Research Group undertakes theoretical and experimental research on linguistic development. Our research investigates the different stages in language acquisition and loss in both first and second language, as well as bilingualism.
The objective of this research group is to provide a regular forum for discussion of work in progress and a natural grouping for collaborative research. The group is particularly keen to promote interdisciplinary research with people working on developmental topics within neighbouring disciplines.
- The group has access to the full range of research facilities of the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences, including the Edinburgh Laboratory for Language Development (ELfLanD).
- Outcomes of our research on bilingualism are disseminated through our information service Bilingualism Matters.
We hold regular meetings to discuss our work. This term we meet in room 3.10 of the Dugald Stewart Building. To receive email announcements for these meetings, contact John-Sebastian Schutter or Francesca Filiaci.
