Description and aim

 

Modelling meets Infant Studies in Language Acquisition:

A Dialogue on Current Challenges and Future Directions

 

The study of first language acquisition is crucial in furthering our understanding of the cognitive prerequisites and processes involved in language, a defining capacity of human cognition. Currently, early language acquisition is successfully studied from two main perspectives: one approach tests theoretical assumptions by studying infants’ responses with behavioural and neurocognitive methods; the other implements theories by means of computational models. This workshop aims to bring these two approaches closer together, a much needed advance in the field and one that promises to deepen our understanding of the issues that play a role during language acquisition.
