Language Acquisition Facility

Child Language Acquisition FacilityThe Language Acquisition Facility provides up-to-date technical support to researchers that wish to work on children's language development. Digital video recording equipment and sound recording equipment are available for data collection and analysis. This facility also hosts a large toy library, assembled over the years to provide props for the Truth Value Judgment Task and the Elicited Production Task, experimental techniques developed by Associate Professor Rosalind Thornton and Professor Stephen Crain.

The Language Acquisition Facility provides a welcoming environment for studies with children aged 18 months and upwards. Also working with different day care centres, a wide range of experiments have taken place in the lab, investigating the details of children's syntactic and semantic knowledge.
