language development; word learning; language production

Nick is interested in language acquisition, development, and production. He is particularly interested in what information young children attend to and remember when they are exposed to a new word. In addition, Nick is  interested in the factors that influence children's tendencies to ask questions about word meanings. He is also interested in how children respond to disfluencies in speech. Finally, he is interested in differences in how speakers talk to children and adults.
