Talk for Memrise's *MemTalks* series on the benefits of sleep for language learning.
A book at bedtime provides opportunities for language learning. Our recent study suggests that learning new words before sleep might help us to remember them.
We test whether sleep-associated memory benefits are observable in naturalistic language learning.

Why do some children excel at vocabulary learning while others get left behind? We’ve been thinking about how new word learning builds upon vocabulary we already have.
We present new evidence that poor comprehenders’ encoding difficulties extend beyond word meanings and into the phonological domain; but that consolidation mechanisms remain intact.

Different neural mechanisms may support word learning in children and adults.
