Network Science Approaches to Early Word Learning
Room 305 |
26 Bedford Way
London | WC1H 0DS | United Kingdom
An Experimental Psychology Seminar.
Speaker: Professor Thomas Hills, Department of Psychology, University of Warwick.
How does the statistical structure of language or objects as they occur in the world influence the order in which children learn words? Network science provides a method for approaching this problem by quantifying how the structural relationships between words and concepts are related to their order of acquisition. I will describe some of my latest work in this area using two cases studies: the first asking how learning two languages at once may influence the structure of lexical representations in bilingual first language learners, and the second focusing on the potential role of distinctiveness in feature biases (e.g., shape bias) in early language learning
