Language Science Talks: Dr. Krista Byers-Heinlein

Tuesday January 24, 2017
3:30 PM - 3:30 PM


One baby, two languages: Infants and bilingual environments

Infants growing up in bilingual environments must build a language system that accommodates two languages. An important task for these infants is to discriminate and differentiate their languages. Krista Byers-Heinlein will present evidence that bilingual infants typically hear their two languages in bilingual contexts: spoken by the same person, in the same situation, and/or within the same sentence.
This talk is part of a series organized by UBC Language Sciences which showcases outstanding researchers in the language sciences from around the world.
