Effects of enhanced parental input on young children´s vocabulary development and subsequent literacy development - SPRINT
Prof Mats Myrberg
Department of Special Education
Children's everyday language environment determines their early language development, which in turn influences subsequent literacy development. SPRINT aims to study how a parent support program can contribute to a child's language development and later literacy development. In the project, parents of children aged 12-30 months are given the opportunity to view a series of recordings showing what stimulating interactions between parents and children may look like. Thus, parents can try out new ways of interacting with their children. The study is currently being conducted in Sweden, and similar studies are planned in Portugal, Australia, Finland and the United States. SPRINT shall increase the knowledge of how children's language development and subsequent literacy development is influenced by the language environment at home and at preschool.

My research profile is focused on explaining the infant's acquisition of the ambient language's linguistic structure as an emergent information-structuring process anchored on independently motivated biological and social components. My specific goal is to present a coherent and falsifiable model ...
PhD student Ulrika Marklund
My main research interest is the effect of parental linguistic input on child language and communication development. My aim is to identify and measure parameters in parental communicative behaviour and relate them to child communicative performance. Factors in parental communication expected to be ...
PhD student Ellen Marklund
My research focuses on first language acquisition, specifically early speech perception. I'm also interested in computational modeling of language development, as well as in methodological issues of empirical infant studies (primarily eye-tracking).www.ling.su.se/ellen.marklundList of publications ...
Dr Iris-Corinna Schwarz
I'm interested in how infants acquire language. My research questions address the development of infant speech perception (native and nonnative speech perception) as well as features of the speech input (for example, infant-directed speech), relating both to one of the earliest measureable language ...
