Paper by Gaja Jarosz in Language Learning and Development
Gaja Jarosz, along with co-author (and former Yale Cognitive Science student) J. Alex Johnson has recently published a paper in the journal Language Learning and Development. Their study is a systematic analysis of the information content of a wide range of distributional cues to word boundaries, individually and in combination, in naturally occurring child-directed speech across three languages (English, Polish, and Turkish). The paper presents a series of statistical analyses examining the relative predictive strength of these cues, the overlap in the information about word boundaries they contain, and the variability in their relative strengths and interactions across the languages.
