Current Trends in Statistical Approaches to Language Acquisition
This volume brings together representative samples of current statistical approaches to language acquisition that span the range of sub-areas in which these approaches have been pursued. Topics covered include: phonological acquisition, the acquisition of word forms, word categories and word meanings. The chapters also discuss statistical approaches more broadly, and statistical learning and language disorders. The book will be of great interest to students and researchers in cognitive psychology and psycholinguistics looking for an overview of statistical approaches to language acquisition as applied to a variety of sub-domains.
