Here is my poster for CogSci 2018. Our study evaluated whether listeners can use spatial deixis (e.g., this, that, these, and those) to predict the plurality and proximity of a speaker's referent. In an eye-tracking task, L1 adults, L1 children and L2 adults viewed scenes while listening to deictic sentences (e.g., Look at that beautiful baby) … Continue reading CogSci 2018
Here are my abstracts and posters for ICIS 2018. Our first study evaluated the developmental emergence of verbal prediction and language comprehension. We find that prediction and comprehension emerge concurrently over the second postnatal year. These findings add to a growing body of literature suggesting that prediction is a language learning mechanism, and further suggest … Continue reading ICIS 2018
This Summer, Felicia Zhang and I are developing an online course with the Princeton McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. Below is an overview of the course, which will be accessible in Fall, 2018: Two of the biggest challenges for undergraduates in psychology are understanding key concepts in statistics and applying those concepts to analyze … Continue reading online course: intro to stats with R
Here are my abstract and poster for CUNY 2018. Our study evaluated whether listeners can use spatial deixis (e.g., this, that) to predict a speaker’s likely referent. Adults and 5-year-olds viewed scenes while listening to deictic sentences (e.g., Look at that beautiful baby) and neutral sentences (e.g., Look at the beautiful baby). We found that both adults … Continue reading CUNY 2018
Reuter, T., Emberson, L. L., Romberg, A. R., & Lew-Williams, C. (in press). Individual differences in nonverbal prediction and vocabulary size in infancy. Cognition. Big thanks to my co-authors, Fernanda Fernandez and Jean Bellamy, and all our participant families!
The Princeton Program in Cognitive Science is now funding my research on language processing and prediction via simulation. Thanks to everyone who helped me in formulating these ideas and writing the application, especially Casey Lew-Williams and Jessie Schwab!
Today I was surprised with an invitation to present at the UPenn Common Ground Seminar in Language and Communication Sciences. Looking forward!
