A bit about Amy Bidgood

I completed my BA in Languages and Linguistics at the University of York, followed by a PGCE in ESOL teaching at the University of Wolverhampton. Whilst continuing to teach, I completed an MA in Applied Linguistics at the University of Birmingham. I began working as a Research Assistant in my old department in York, investigating children’s phonological development, before moving to Liverpool to work on Ben Ambridge’s project looking at children’s overgeneralisation errors. I am working on my PhD part-time.

My Role in LuCiD

I was a Research Associate on the Language 0-5 Project
