Interests include: Understanding how children build a lexicon by examining the acquisition, organization, and processing of novel and known words.
Current research projects include:
identifying the processes underlying learning of the sound form of new words and describing the structure of word representations in typically-developing preschool children;
documenting the influence of phonological development on word learning and representations in preschool children with either normal or delayed phonological development;
describing the structure of word representations in children with Specific Language Impairment.
