Meeting Description: This satellite workshop, to be held in conjunction with LabPhon 14, addresses the challenges of investigating the role of gestural coordination in first language phonological acquisition, with coordination construed broadly to encompass both the coordination of gestures within the individual infant or child and the coordination of gestures between the individual and others in social interactions such as the act of imitation. The workshop will focus on both types of coordination, in an afternoon session with submitted papers on the quantification of data obtained with experimental techniques following a morning session with invited speakers talking about imitation and learning from infancy through early childhood. The goal is to discuss novel experimental methods in phonological acquisition research and to relate models of imitation and learning in adults to models of imitation and learning in infants and toddlers.
