Our linguists live and breathe language. And every once in awhile they really geek out and we love it! Kelly and Liliana came in wearing fun "Wug" shirts today. We all wanted to know what is a Wug...the Wug Test was designed by Jean Berko Gleason in 1958 as way to investigate how children learn the plural and inflectional morphemes.

Check out this video of Kelly and Liliana explaining the test.


By the way, they got their shirts from The Wug Store on Cafepress.
