Here at @BLIPLabNTU we have been super busy untangling pattens of language use and language development in multilingual Singapore. 1/
#multilingualisnormal ImageImage
2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and continuing our work with families was complicated. We developed a tonne of new tools and new methods for working with families remotely. 2/
We have been working like crazy to get everything ready for sharing with the world in time for #SRCD2021
I had a go at printing all our archive docs (for my records), and it turns out it was... a lot! 3/ Image
Like A LOT lot! That’s @BLIPLabNTU’s posters for #SRCD2021 on the left, and all of the tools we have created to do the work on the right - all of which we have released as Open Access resources this week!
#OA #Openmethods /4 Image
Oh! You would like to play with some of these nice toys? You would like to explore new ways of characterising #bilingualism and #multilingualism ? or finding out about families approach to #languageplanning ? or how to observe parent/child interactions in #onlineresearch? 5/
We have documented all of our #SRCD2021 posters, and all of the tools behind them in a lovely clicky dashboard. Posters at the top, tools supporting them at the bottom 🙌🏻
Feel free to browse and explore our work from #multilingual Singapore! /

I am SO pround of our huge @BLIPLabNTU team who have been working hard towards these goals for >2 years now!

Check us out and our language history graphed in balloons! 7/ Image

Great tips for helping participants enjoy your studies - and a pathway to better data!

Another tip is to think about whether your task’s structure leads participants to expect certain kinds of questions or actions. @VanjaKovic and I call this “experimental pragmatics”
@VanjaKovic Once, we ran a study where TWO THIRDS of our participants responded weirdly😱 Turns out that they read the instructions, but the task itself led them to expect something different - They thought we made a mistake in the instructions, so they ignored them!

@VanjaKovic The pattern was really clear - our participants were trying to help us by doing 'the right thing' even though it was not what we asked them to do

Ah I really enjoyed being Discussant for today’s symposium at #SPR2022 @TheRealSPR
It’s a joy to bring these three projects together and talk about the challenges of research using high dimensional neuro data and some pathways to doing better!
1/ Title slide for a talk
@VanjaKovic led us off with an intro to the three great projects being brought together for this syposium, highlighting their focus on building open communities to advance research Screen capture from a video...
@angelasoskic shared the background behind the ARTEM-IS project — reminding us that even within one rather narrow study type (N400s) there can be as many analysis pipelines as there are papers!

Very excited to share this work led by @hannahlgoh with @LucaOnnis2
Can bilinguals’ of a language with one type of retroflex (in fricatives and affricates) learn to hear a different kind of retroflex (in stop consonants)? Can they transfer their perceptual skills?
What’s a retroflex? A speech sound that is pronounced with the tip of the tongue flipped over a bit, like in this diagram (the purple line). In some languages there are phoneme contrasts where changing the shape of your tongue like this makes a difference in what word you say! Cross section diagram of a ...
Languages like Hindi and Tamil have contrasts between “d” sounds made with these two tongue shapes.
We can write them in the IPA like this:
/d/ alveolar
/ɖ/ retroflex

English only has /d/, and many English speakers find it hard to hear differences between /d/ and /ɖ/

Join us at #SIPS2022 tomorrow to help make rock solid tools for transparent neuroscience!
We believe the right kind of tools can make methods reporting smoother and less error-prone.
We’ll introduce the ARTEM-IS Web-App (beta) for you to try, and we can work on improving it! 🧵 A logo for ARTEMIS shows a ...
Accurate methods reporting is super important because different processing pathways can lead to different results, as we’ve shown in one multiverse analysis of N400s 🤔
(see how the Related version Reversed comparison has different outcomes in different pathways) Schematic showing the garde...
If we want to improve #reproducibility and #replicability in our field, we need to make sure we can accurately report what has been done - which path was taken through the Garden of Forking Paths?
Lots of reporting guidelines currently exist but… graph showing increase in n...

So pleased to see our first report of translanguaging in child-directed speech as a poster at #WILD2022!
Since our Corpus team couldn't travel to San Sebastian, our fab lab-mate Han will be standing by to answer questions during the poster session at 16:40 CEST) today👇and also..
..in a bit of an experiment, I'll also be standing by for any Q&A about methods, transcription protocols, how on earth we managed 92% retention rate for the 143 children in the sample (8m to 4y), over three picture-narration tasks spanning 4-6 months!
This poster is really exciting for me because it was a study we rolled out during lockdown. At the time we were planning an ambitious series of home visits, but suddenly we weren't able to visit any homes! So we redesigned our entire protocol for online participation.

🪄Experiments in Lecturing🪄

In a few hot minutes I have the great pleasure to deliver a plenary lecture at ‘New Horizons in Education’ for the University of Belgrade. I’ll be talking about “De-Centering the Professor” with a focus on diversity and access 😃
1/ Lecture slide: De-centering...
It’s exciting because I really take seriously the idea that teachers are quite different from the vast majority of the students in our classes, so I want to share some strategies for making the class better for people who aren’t US
2/ Teachers are ~weird~ atypic...
So here’s the experimental bit! I don’t speak Serbian, and although the conference languages are both English AND Serbian, I know that there will be some attendees who have stronger Serbian language skills than English…
