Language Learning & Bilingualism Lab

The primary focus of this lab is to understand how individual difference impacts language. Specifically vocabulary, grammar, and narrative learning outcomes. They investigate individual differences by studying individuals with different language learning capacity (i.e., typical learners and learners with language impairment) and individuals with various linguistic backgrounds (i.e., monolinguals and bilinguals)
