WHAT DO BABIES KNOW ABOUT LANGUAGE? And how can we know what they know?

Date: Tuesday January 29, 2019

Time: 7:00 pm

Location: McMaster Innovation Park – Room 1AB
Address: 175 Longwood Road South,Hamilton

Guest Speaker: DR. CATHERINE ANDERSON Catherine Anderson

Most children speak their first word around age one, but babies know  a great deal about their language before they start to speak. This talk will show how we can draw conclusions about infants’ language knowledge by observing their behavior in carefully-designed experiments. The results reveal that babies are already learning  their native language even before birth!
