The Words in the World Partnership Grant is training the next generation of research leaders in psycholinguistics. We examine how aging affects peoples’ ability to use language, how languages are learned, and how communication is affected by brain damage. The partnership is making the latest research techniques available worldwide, while also highlighting the wisdom and experience of senior researchers.
The ability to use language is at the core of our lives as individuals and members of a community. If you are learning a new language, experiencing language loss associated with aging or stroke, re-entering the workforce, or simply changing professions, the nature of your language skills will be of key concern.
Our network currently includes over 40 academic and sectoral partners and 60 individual collaborators in Canada and abroad. Our researchers do work in more than 25 languages and 15 populations, using nearly 20 methodologies.
