The Purdue Language Learning and Meaning Acquisition (LLAMA) lab seeks to understand how children learn language, and we are looking for families to take part in important and fun research studies on child development.
We study many questions related to language development. For example, we are interested in how children make sense of speech they hear in everyday situations; how children use their growing understanding of the world to expand their vocabularies; and how they interpret language with amazing speed. We believe that this research can help educators, families and scientists understand important aspects of how children think, learn and develop.
