Dr Amy Bidgood has written two articles for English & Media Centre eMagazine.

The first article, Learning about Language Acquisition: How the Language 0-5 Project is helping us find out what's really going on, outlines how the Language 0-5 team is investigating child language acquisition, using a wide variety of different research approaches to get a complete picture of all the factors involved. Amy explains why it's important to gain a full picture of how children learn to communicate with language, the different techniques involved and what we hope to learn at the end of the intensive 5 year project following 80 children. 

The second article, What comes before words?discusses the role of pre-linguistic skills such as babble and gestures.
