Call for Papers:

Language encompasses both auditory and visual cues that are highly relevant to language learning. Infants and toddlers take advantage of the different sensory perceptual cues, and integrate auditory and visual information while processing spoken language. COVID-19 has affected human communication through the pervasive use of masks. This Research Topic aims at promoting innovative research on the effects of face-masked input on language development. Given that masks alter the acoustics of speech and block or obscure facial information, they may deprive the young learner of some of the necessary cues for language processing at the linguistic, social, interactional, or emotional levels. We welcome contributions that address the impact of face-masked input in language development to tackle fundamental issues in the phonetics of speech cues, in auditory speech processing, in visual and audiovisual language processing, and typical and atypical language learning.
