Elke Huysmans at Radio 1 ‘De Taalstaat’ about her thesis: Where Language and Hearing Meet: Consequences of Congenital Hearing Impairment on the Production and Reception of Language in Adults

March 24th, Elke Huysmans (Clinical linguist at the VUmc department of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery/Audiology)  successfully defended her thesis called:  Where Language and Hearing Meet: Consequences of Congenital Hearing Impairment on the Production and Reception of Language in Adults.  She was interviewed by the program ‘de Taalstaat’ at Radio 1 on the occasion of her thesis.

Huysmans: ‘’Congenital hearing impairment leads to problems with the deployment of specific grammatical rules in the spoken production of Dutch in adulthood. Adults show specific problems with the use of definite articles (‘de/het’, the), verb conjugations and the Dutch adverb ‘er’. These problems do not occur in their written language production. ‘’
