Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Language Acquisition in Bilingual and Atypical Populations: Focus on Developmental Comparisons
Guest-Edited by Tania Ionin

This Special Issue investigates the theoretical mechanisms behind language development in different populations, addressing such empirical research questions as:
• How does age affect linguistic development?
• Is cross-linguistic transfer attested for different types of populations, such as simultaneous vs. sequential bilinguals?
• Is there a critical period for language acquisition, and does it affect development as well as ultimate attainment?
• What are the relative contributions of cognitive vs. linguistic maturity in the development of children with SLI, cognitive impairments or autism?
• Is the source of language difficulty or language breakdown different across populations?
