Eve V. Clark

Prof. Eve Vivienne Clark, Professor in Lingusistics specializing in first language acquisition, Stanford University.

Eve Vivienne Clark, PhD Edinburgh 1969, is the Richard W. Lyman Professor in Humanities and Professor of Linguistics at Stanford University. A member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences, she is a former Fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (Stanford) and a Guggenheim Fellow, as well as a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; she is currently President of the International Association for the Study of Child Language. Her research has focussed on how children acquire the meanings of words from the earliest stages of language acquisition; how they master details of word formation in different languages – and the role of such factors as simplicity, transparency, and productivity in their novel coinages; and the kinds of information adults offer, verbally and nonverbally, about the meanings of new words. She also works on the pragmatics of language use in adults and children.
