The Child Language Lab was well-represented at the 2017 Longhorn Bazaar, part of the activities during Undergraduate Research Week. Rui Akaike presented her honor’s thesis project, on word learning and language mode in monolinguals and bilinguals. Arielle Tamez, Brianna Cooley, Laura Nagy, Audrey Snow, Allison Thomas and Chloé Gomez presented new data from our larger project on the influence of speaking styles and semantic context on word recognition. (A collaboration with the UT SoundLab). They got to share the experience of coding eyetracking data from very distracted 11 and 12 year olds with their audience:) All of our young scientists did a fantastic job!
And less than a week later, the Child Language Lab was represented by Audrey Snow and Chloé Gomez at the UT Linguistics Department Undergraduate Research Day!
