Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Language acquisition
  • Artificial intelligence

Her primary areas of investigation include Sign language, Language acquisition, American Sign Language, Hearing loss and Manually coded language. Her Sign language study typically links adjacent topics like Lexico. Rachel I. Mayberry has included themes like Developmental linguistics, Age of Acquisition, Second-language acquisition and First language in her Language acquisition study.

Her study explores the link between Age of Acquisition and topics such as Cognitive psychology that cross with problems in Grammar. Rachel I. Mayberry studied Hearing loss and Language development that intersect with Early childhood, Language Experience Approach and Constructed language. Rachel I. Mayberry usually deals with Manually coded language and limits it to topics linked to Language interpretation and Comprehension approach, Cued speech, Deaf education, Learning to read and Japanese Sign Language.

Her most cited work include:

  • The long-lasting advantage of learning sign language in childhood: Another look at the critical period for language acquisition (265 citations)
  • First-language acquisition after childhood differs from second-language acquisition: The case of American Sign Language. (228 citations)
  • Reading Achievement in Relation to Phonological Coding and Awareness in Deaf Readers: A Meta-analysis (225 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Rachel I. Mayberry mainly focuses on Sign language, American Sign Language, Language acquisition, First language and Developmental psychology. Rachel I. Mayberry interconnects Grammar, Age of Acquisition and Spoken language in the investigation of issues within Sign language. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Syntax, Eye tracking, Artificial intelligence, Natural language processing and Modality.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Developmental linguistics, Cognitive psychology, Hearing loss and Second-language acquisition in addition to Language acquisition. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Cognitive development and Cognition. Her study in Manually coded language is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Language transfer, Comprehension approach and Language interpretation.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Sign language (61.11%)
  • American Sign Language (45.83%)
  • Language acquisition (27.78%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • American Sign Language (45.83%)
  • Sign language (61.11%)
  • First language (22.22%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her scientific interests lie mostly in American Sign Language, Sign language, First language, Modality and Language Experience Approach. Rachel I. Mayberry has researched American Sign Language in several fields, including Language acquisition, Visual language, Comprehension and Second-language acquisition. The concepts of her Sign language study are interwoven with issues in Cognitive psychology, Eye tracking, Communication and Spoken language.

Rachel I. Mayberry combines subjects such as Word order, Age of Acquisition and Language deprivation with her study of First language. Her Age of Acquisition research includes themes of Semantics, Neurolinguistics and Natural language, Manually coded language. As a member of one scientific family, Rachel I. Mayberry mostly works in the field of Modality, focusing on Verb and, on occasion, Stimulus, Transfer of training, Gesture, Causality and Sign.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Rethinking the critical period for language: New insights into an old question from American Sign Language. (46 citations)
  • Neural Language Processing in Adolescent First-Language Learners: Longitudinal Case Studies in American Sign Language (21 citations)
  • Effects of Early Language Deprivation on Brain Connectivity: Language Pathways in Deaf Native and Late First-Language Learners of American Sign Language. (13 citations)
