I study how children acquire language, and in particular, how they learn about meaning. My research has looked at various dimensions of meaning, including children's understanding of temporal and event semantics (especially the linguistic category of aspect), and their understanding of social indexical meanings coded in dialect and register. I conduct my studies at my lab on OSU's campus, and also at the Columbus Center of Science and Industry (COSI).
