      Editorial Scope

      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-
      language learning.

      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

      Instructions to Contributors

      Language Learning and Development publishes refereed and invited
      articles reporting original research or theory. Submitted manuscripts
      should be double-spaced-including title page, text, tables, figures,
      references, notes, and appendixes-and must adhere to the guidelines
      of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
      (5th ed.). The first page should include the title, name(s), and
      affiliation(s) of author(s) and full contact addresses for

      should begin on the third page, without repeating the title. Use
      either American or British spelling consistently within an article.
      Manuscripts should normally be no more than 25 to 30 double-spaced
      pages (including references, notes, and tables). Minimize the number
      of notes. Tables and figures should be placed after the references,
      each on a separate page with an indication in the text of where they
      should be.

      Submissions should be emailed to lld@.... Include in the e-
      mail the title of the paper, the authors, and the abstract. The
      preferred form of submission is a PDF file including all tables and
      figures, with any special fonts (e.g., IPA) embedded. It is also
      possible to submit the manuscript and tables as a Word .doc or .rtf
      file, with figures in a separate .jpg or .gif file. After acceptance,
      a final version of the article will be required on diskette/CD as
