Ava Irani


I am a 4th year PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests primarily lie in the areas of first language acquisition and syntax. I am interested in how children acquire rules in their language by using positive evidence in the input. My dissertation focuses on the mechanisms behind learning verb argument structure while addressing the problem of overgeneralization.
