Welcome to the Lisbon Baby Lab!

How do infants learn to speak and understand language? What do babies know about language, especially about their native language - Portuguese -, at different stages of development?

In the Lisbon Baby Lab we investigate language acquisition, focusing on early language development (between 4 and 36 months).

The Lisbon Baby Lab was set up in 2010, as part of the research program on acquisition of prosody held by the Phonetics Lab (CLUL) and of the Project on the Development of Prosodic Structure and Intonation (DEPE), funded by FCT. It is the first baby lab in Portugal, studying the language development of infants and young children.
