Welcome...

Daniel Wiechmann My perspective on language is a blend of views from linguistics, cognitive psychology and computer science and is best framed within experience- or usage-based, emergentist theory.

A large part of my research employs machine learning techniques to data from corpora of natural language productions to reverse engineer aspects of linguistics knowledge development in early bilingual L1 and advanced L2 language acquisition. More recently, I have developed a growing interested in incidental, implicit learning.
