We will present perception and production experiments, that we use in our Babylab.
The perception experiments are behavioural research methods for the investigation of early language perception of babies via looking times to certain stimuli. We will present how it works in a small model of the booth we are using in the Babylab.
The production experiments are a sentence completion test where we use pictures and a puppet that presents sentences the children have to complete. The other test is a picture-naming task where children are supposed to move pictures using a magic spell and a wand. With these tests we assess German language skills of monolingual and bilingual children.
