Profile

Lian has expertise in the field of language development. She has applied various research methods, such as corpus analyses, experimental linguistics, and analyses of semi-naturalistic speech and gestures (meaningful movements, usually of the hands, that accompany spoken language). She is currently working on a project that focuses on preschoolers’ and kindergartners’ language use in the playground.

Besides her work at Erasmus University, Lian is completing her PhD at Radboud University (entitled: “Benefits of sign-mediated word learning: Evidence from deaf/hard-of-hearing children and children with Developmental Language Disorder”), for which she obtained full funding from Fonds Instituut voor Doven and Stichting…
