Project title: The discovery of communication in infancy

Primary supervisor: Dr Danielle Matthews

Project description: During the first two year of life infants become remarkably effective communicators. By the time they approach their first birthday they can typically point at objects to draw other people’s attention to them. By the second birthday they can typically combine words to convey complex ideas. The PhD student will be involved in a project that examines what factors promote this learning process.

Formal enquiries should be addressed to: Dr Danielle Matthews (danielle.matthews@sheffield.ac.uk)
