Our second article in a series on language and communication written by LuCiD researchers for Nursery World Magazine has been published. The article, Word for word, written by Dr Rebecca Frost, Dr Katherine Twomey, Dr Gemma Taylor, Prof Gert Westermann and Prof Padraic Monaghan focuses on word learning. In the article, our researchers explain that how well children learn words is influenced by many things, including the environment and the manner in which adults speak to them. They also provide evidence-based tips to help children's word learning. Read the full open access article (PDF opens in new tab).
