One of the most remarkable feats of childhood is learning a first language. This course will examine how children accomplish this task. We will focus on a wide range of evidence and theories examining typical and atypical language development. Topics include infant speech perception, word meaning, grammar, communication, second-language learning, language disorders, and language and thought. The course is a mixture of lecture and discussion.
