Sauppe, Sebastian; Naess, Åshild; Roversi, Giovanni; Meyer, Martin; Bornkessel-Schlesewsky, Ina; Bickel, Balthasar – Cognitive Science, 2023
The language comprehension system preferentially assumes that agents come first during incremental processing. While this might reflect a biologically fixed bias, shared with other domains and other species, the evidence is limited to languages that place agents first, and so the bias could also be learned from usage frequency. Here, we probe the…

McClay, Elise K.; Cebioglu, Senay; Broesch, Tanya; Yeung, H. Henny – Developmental Science, 2022
Infant-directed speech (IDS) is phonetically distinct from adult-directed speech (ADS): It is typically considered to have special prosody--like higher pitch and slower speaking rates--as well as unique speech sound properties, for example, more breathy, hyperarticulated, and/or variable consonant and vowel articulation. These phonetic features…

Pathuddin, Hikmawati; Kamariah; Mariani, Andi – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2023
Culture plays an essential role in the emergence and development of mathematics; hence, both are inseparable. Mathematics emerges from the daily activities of a group of people, and although its concepts have been applied traditionally since time immemorial, it has not reached the level of formal usage. One cultural activity involving mathematical…

Globally, literacy can be conceived of in different ways. Two perspectives that have influenced adult literacy policy internationally are the economic functionalist and the sociocultural.

Hetaraka, Maia; Meiklejohn-Whiu, Selena; Webber, Melinda; Jesson, Rebecca – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Western literacy theories and models often reflect Eurocentric notions of literacy and literacy practices. In Aotearoa New Zealand, the prevalence of these conceptualisations is linked to issues of power and result in a narrow and inaccurate framing of Maori tamariki (children). In this article Tiritiria, a Maori philosophical view of knowledge,…

Haruna Kasai – Comparative Education, 2024
Internationally, particularly in Western societies, the concept of multiculturalism tends to be associated with 'progressive' and liberal social visions promoting cultural diversity and minority rights.

The distinction between both perspectives, he explained, is exemplified in the two names used for the region: Pacific Islands and Oceania. The former represents a colonial…
