Rennie Pasquinelli received this year’s Jean Berko-Gleason Award for her paper on “Tense acquisition in Williams syndrome: The interaction of rules with long-term memory impairment”. The award is given annually at the Boston University Conference on Language Development (BUCLD) for the best paper with a student as first author. Receiving this award is especially fitting, since Rennie used the method originated by Jean Berko-Gleason in 1958, the ‘Wug’ test, to measure children’s production of tense for novel verbs.
