My current research work is investigating cognitive-developmental and educational aspects of language and literacy development among bilingual/multilingual speakers, in particular those who learn English as a second/additional language, focusing on how oral language skills are acquired and how they relate to literacy outcomes. The work has an individual differences focus on the development of cognitive-linguistic skills related to language/literacy learning – i.e., by determining influences on individual variations from different language backgrounds. In addition, there is also a cross-language/cultural aspect to my work in its consideration of learning development across different language groups.
