Helen Buckler

Assistant Professor in Psycholinguistics & Second Language Acquisition, Faculty of Arts



Prior to joining the University of Nottingham I held a Rubicon postdoctoral fellowship from the Netherlands Institute for Scientific Research (NWO). I used this to conduct research into the effect of multiple accents on early language acquisition at the University of Toronto.

Education: BA(Hons); MA University of Manchester; PhD Radboud University Nijmegen / Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics.

Expertise Summary

My research focuses on language acquisition, in particular how infants and children acquire language(s) from the speech they hear. I investigate the acoustic properties of infant- and child-directed speech, and how this relates to speech perception and production. I am also interested in how properties of the input affect learners' sociolinguistic awareness.
