Alisa Baron and the BESA

It was great to have Prof. Alisa Baron back with us in Columbus!

Lots of great information about a new assessment (the Bilingual English-Spanish Assessment) that can be used with bilingual populations in Central Ohio and a pleasure to see our ever increasing group of bilingual speech-language pathologists!

¡Enhorabuena, Ramón!

Congratulations, Ramón on your new job at Facebook, as a Latin American Spanish semanticist, with a specialization in experimental design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are so proud of you!!!

We wish you and Naisha the very best of luck in the Pacific Northwest. Come back and tell us all about Seattle, when you’re in the neighborhood!!

Giving it our “some”

Laurie Maynell and Matt Galla – we are all giving it our some, in the study of children’s existential quantifiers!

 

Congratulations Santy on your new Kichwa-English dictionary!

Santy has co-authored, with Jordan Lachler, Sean Burke, Conor Snoek, Michele García-Vega, Megan Bontogon and Evan Lloyd, this newly published bilingual dictionary through Universidad de San Francisco de Quito Press, entitled “Kichwa-English Shimiyuk Kamu Dictionary”.

 

 

Congratulations!!

Optional Infinitives and Optional Inversion in Child Spanish and Child English, in Language

Thank you, Mariana Vega-Mendoza and Grant Goodall for your patience, insight and hard work on our paper. Also, thank you to Megan Crowhurst and the anonymous reviewers at Language.

Could not have done it without the fantastic undergraduate thesis work by Valissa Warren and Cara Ricci and the graduate level help from Sarah Sanderson Doyle!

Great conference visit to Madison

The Symposium on Research in Child Language Disorders, in Madison, Wisconsin, is always a constructive, intense learning experience and this year was no exception. Lots of discussion about Developmental Language Disorder vs. Specific Language Impairment and lots of discussion about many different aspects of the developmental linguistics of Spanish and other languages. #SRCLD

 

Ramón and Amy did great a great job presenting their posters.

 

It’s just a beautiful place to visit and it is always such a pleasure to see our Speech and Hearing Colleagues and to learn from them. We were happy to be able to introduce Ximena, Morgan and Melissa to this very unique place and experience.
