  • LSA Summer 07 (Stanford University) Course: LSA.331: Language Acquisition Methodologies and Practices: How They Alter the Pursuit of the Scientific Study of Language
    The study of language acquisition today requires collaborative and interdisciplinary research based on reliable and replicable cross-linguistic data sets. Collecting and creating these sets is a complex process involving not only the participant subjects but also audio-visual resources and associated technologies including cyberinfrastructure. In addition, they require making syntax, semantics, phonology and pragmatics accessible and relating these domains to various other areas of cognitive science.
