Participant Expectations
In this study, participants will learn a made-up language for around five minutes while we use an eye tracker to assess how this learning is unfolding. They will then try other language tasks so that we can assess how their language learning relates to their language and other abilities. Some of these follow up tasks are computerized, and some are in person. The follow up tasks involve activities like defining words and detecting patterns.
