TITLE: What’s in a word: Spoken word learning in a hyperpolyglot

OVERVIEW: Hyperpolyglots, talented language learners who have learned to speak over a dozen languages, provide a unique opportunity to look at the process of spoken word learning. Here I present the case of a hyperpolyglot who speaks over 2 dozen languages and compare his performance with that of monolingual speakers of American English on a dynamic assessment of novel spoken word learning. The quantitative and qualitative results of this assessment are discussed from a psycholinguistic perspective as they inform us about the unique talents that may underlie prodigious language learning.
