Lab in Development of Communication

This lab module will introduce to students linguistic and non-linguistic ways of human communication from psycholinguistic perspectives. It addresses the following issues: 1) How do speakers communicate? 2) How do they modify the ways of communication to accommodate different circumstances? 3) When and how do children develop different ways of communication? 4) Are their cross-linguistic differences in ways of communication? 5) How do communication-impaired adults and children incorporate other modalities to communicate? Theoretical and empirical issues will be discussed. Students will also be conducting scientific studies to examine latest issues of human communication.
