Learning a new language is difficult, yet some succeed at it. This talk will discuss how variations in practice tasks influence comprehension of Turkish nominal morphology at early stages of learning. Maya will discuss preliminary findings from her dissertation research in which college students (N = 157) were introduced to a Turkish miniature language via a computer-assisted language learning (CALL) protocol delivered via zoom.
