Clinical Linguistics and Language Acquisition

The Research Group in Clinical Linguistics and Language Acquisition consists of researchers and PhD students at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, and also includes researchers from collaborating institutions.

The central focus of clinical linguistics is the application of the principles and methods of linguistics and phonetics to communication impairment in children and adults. The Research Group in Clinical Linguistics and Language Acquisition conducts research on:

  • typical and atypical speech and language development in children
  • atypical speech and language as a result of brain damage in adults, compared to neurologically healthy adults

About once a month we organize a forum for clinical linguistics and language acquisition (usually in Norwegian). We work on several different projects, participate in networks, and run an informational website on language development and language disorders (in Norwegian). In addition, we collaborate with various research institutions and user organizations.
