Building Realistic Models of Language Development

The aim of this workshop, which took place on 19-20 February 2015, was to bring together specialists in language development with language modellers interested in simulating developmental data, to stimulate the cross-fertilisation of ideas. The workshop was arranged in pairs of talks alternating between developmentalists and modellers across a range of topics, including word learning and categorisation, morphological development, syntactic development and SLI, along with plenty of time for discussion.
