Kerkhoff, Annemarie, Elise de Bree and Frank Wijnen. 2017. Can poor readers be good learners? Non-adjacent dependency learning in adults with dyslexia. Developmental Perspectives in Written Language and Literacy: In honor of Ludo Verhoeven, Segers, Eliane and Paul van den Broek (eds.), pp. 315–331
This study aimed to test whether adults with dyslexia are impaired at non-adjacent dependency learning, and whether potential learning difficulties are domain-specific or not. Participants were familiarised with one of two artificial languages containing dependencies between the first and third… read more | Chapter
Bree, Elise de and Frank Wijnen. 2016. Chapter 7. Word Stress Competence and Literacy in Dutch Children with a Family Risk of Dyslexia and Children with Dyslexia. Linguistic Rhythm and Literacy, Thomson, Jenny and Linda Jarmulowicz (eds.), pp. 135–162
This study assessed Dutch word stress acquisition in children with (a familial risk of) dyslexia and normally developing children. Word stress production was measured through repetition of non-words with stress patterns varying in regularity. Both three-year-old children with a family risk of… read more | Article
Wijnen, Frank, Elise de Bree, Petra M. van Alphen, Jan de Jong and Aryan van der Leij. 2015. Comparing SLI and dyslexia: developmental language profiles and reading outcomes. Specific Language Impairment: Current trends in research, Stavrakaki, Stavroula (ed.), pp. 89–112
In light of the striking overlap in symptoms, it has been proposed that SLI and dyslexia reflect the same underlying disorder, differing only in severity. An alternative view is that SLI and dyslexia overlap (only) partially, sharing some risk factors, and differing on various others. We will… read more | Article
Heuvel, Henk van den, Eric Sanders, Jetske Klatter-Folmer, Roeland van Hout, Paula Fikkert, Anne E. Baker, Jan de Jong, Frank Wijnen and Paul Trilsbeek. 2014. Data curation for a VALID Archive of Dutch Language Impairment Data. Dutch Journal of Applied Linguistics 3:2, pp. 127–136
The VALID Data Archive is an open multimedia data archive in which data from children and adults with language and/or communication problems are brought together. A pilot project, funded by CLARIN-NL, was carried out in which five existing data sets were curated. This pilot enabled us to build up… read more | Article
Kaan, Edith, Andrea Dallas and Frank Wijnen. 2010. Syntactic predictions in second-language sentence processing. Structure Preserved: Studies in syntax for Jan Koster, Zwart, C. Jan-Wouter and Mark de Vries (eds.), pp. 207–214
Phonemes are perceived categorically and this perception is language-specific for adult listeners. Infants initially are "universal" listeners, capable of discriminating both native and non-native speech contrasts. This ability disappears in the first year of life. Maye et al. (Cognition (2002))… read more | Article
Wijnen, Frank and Maaike Verrips. 1998. The acquisition of Dutch syntax. The Acquisition of Dutch, Gillis, Steven and Annick De Houwer (eds.), pp. 223 ff.
Wijnen, Frank. 1994. Taalproduktie en -Ontwikkeling. Taalproduktie, pp. 39–46
The question that is addressed in this contribution is: to what extent does the language production mechanism in children differ from that in competent adult speakers? It is assumed that utterance planning in adults is a hierarchical process, in which relatively autonomous processing components… read more | Article
Chomsky's notions of 'knowledge' and 'ability' are discussed, and are distinguished from the notion 'performance'. 'Knowledge' is taken to refer to the native speaker's abstract knowledge of the language system, 'ability' is taken to refer to the (no less abstract) processing mechanisms underlying… read more | Article
Early word form representations are assumed to be unanalyzed 'routines'. Around age 2 1/2, when the first 50 to 100 words have been acquired, the organization of the mental lexicon starts to change. Word form representations are segmented into their constituent linguistic substructures: syllable… read more | Article
