Title: Language Learning & Development
Language Learning and Development (LL&D) is the official journal of
the Society for Language Development. The journal serves as a vehicle
for interaction among the broad community of scholars and
practitioners who investigate language learning, including language
learning in infancy, childhood, and across the lifespan; language in
both typical and atypical populations and in both native- and second-
LL&D welcomes scholars who pursue diverse approaches to understanding
all aspects of language acquisition, including biological, social,
and cross-cultural influences, and who employ experimental,
observational, ethnographic, comparative, neuroscientific, and formal
methods of investigation.
The journal is multidisciplinary and seeks to examine language
development in all of its many guises. Among the many issues LL&Dwill
explore are biological versus environmental factors in language
development; learning in humans versus animals; learning of signed
versus spoken language; computer models of learning; and how
neurotechnology and visualization of the brain inform our
understanding of language learning and development.
Scholars in psychology, linguistics, computer science, cognitive
science, education, speech and hearing sciences/communication
disorders, and anthropology will be especially interested in this
