Social influences on early language experience and infant vocabulary development
How much we talk to our babies, and how we talk to them, can influence how easily they learn our language. Studies of older infants and children have shown that family social factors play a role.
We are studying the home language environments of young infants, starting before they are talking, through the period when they are learning to talk. We want to find out how language experiences at home differ amongst young infants from varying family backgrounds, and how those differences may be related to later language development.
