Background: Submucous cleft palate (SMCP) has a heterogeneous presentation and is often identified late or misdiagnosed.

Conwell, Erin – Language Learning and Development, 2017
Many approaches to early word learning posit that children assume a one-to-one mapping of form and meaning. However, children's early vocabularies contain homophones, words that violate that assumption. Children might learn such words by exploiting prosodic differences between homophone meanings that are associated with lemma frequency (Gahl,…

Miller, Elizabeth R. – Multilingual Matters, 2014
This book is the first to explore the constitution of language learner agency by drawing on performativity theory, an approach that remains on the periphery of second language research.
