One of the mechanisms responsible for the fast recognition of spoken language is prediction. This study examined whether 4–5 year old monolingual children differ from bilingual children in predicting the upcoming noun on the basis of the lexical semantics of the verb. In an eye-tracking task, we… read more

Nonfactual meanings in early use of evidentials in Turkish child-caregiver interactionsSocial Environment and Cognition in Language Development: Studies in honor of Ayhan Aksu-Koç, Ketrez, F. Nihan, Aylin C. Küntay, Şeyda Özçalışkan and Aslı Özyürek (eds.), pp. 167–178 | Chapter
Previous and current observational and experimental studies conducted on Turkish evidentials mainly focus on reportative and inferential uses of the −mIş particle. Here we focused on its nonfactual usage in child-caregiver interaction where we examined a relatively large videotaped corpus of… read more

We present research on the emergence and development of verbal and non-verbal referential skills of Turkish L1 learners. Turkish has interesting distinctive features compared to other frequently studied languages. The first section presents an overview of research about typically developing L1… read more

Many studies have examined when children are (in)competent in making appropriate referential choices based on their listeners’ requirements. Traditionally, child-level social-cognitive abilities have been invoked in explaining the increasing sophistication of referential skills with age. However,… read more

Clark, Arnon, Inbal, Marisa Casillas, Chigusa Kurumada and Bruno Estigarribia (eds.), pp. 231–250 | Article
We present a critical review of the literature on how children exposed to flexible-word-order languages, especially Turkish, acquire word-order variation. We highlight two traditions of psycholinguistic research assuming different theoretical and methodological approaches, namely… read more
Küntay, Aylin C., Keiko Nakamura and A. Beyza Ateş-Şen 2014 Crosslinguistic and crosscultural approaches to pragmatic developmentPragmatic Development in First Language Acquisition, Matthews, Danielle (ed.), pp. 317–342 | Article
Pragmatic development involves learning to use linguistic code and non-linguistic action in a well-integrated way in relation to an ongoing interaction. Given how different languages encode meaning distinctions differently and how different cultures might organize social interactions differently,… read more
Many developmental studies of narrative isolate resolutions as a structural element, aiming to demonstrate age-related influences on the presence or absence of this component in children’s narrative productions. This study is an ethnographic study of Turkish children’s conversationally occasioned… read more
