Publications led by Professor Petitto Recognized by Peer-Reviewed Journal and Premier International Forum


November 06, 2018

Two publications, on which Professor Laura-Ann Petitto serves as first/senior author, have been recognized by a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering cognitive science and the premier international forum for multidisciplinary research on multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction, interfaces, and system development.


First, Professor Petitto and research collaborators (citation below) were recognized by the editors of Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Cognitive Neuroscience. The researchers’ published paper, “Visual sign phonology: Insights into human reading and language from a natural soundless phonology,” is a theoretical peer-reviewed publication providing a new model about the vital role of Visual Sign Phonology in reading acquisition and reading mastery in young deaf children.



The editors noted that the publication was one of the electronic’s journal’s top 20 most downloaded recent papers published between July 2016 and June 2018.


Petitto, L. A., Langdon, C., Stone, A., Andriola, D., Kartheiser, G., & Cochran, C. (2016). Visual sign phonology: Insights into human reading and language from a natural soundless phonology. WIREs Cognitive Science. doi: 10.1002/wcs.1404.

In addition, Professor Petitto and a separate team of researchers were recognized for the publication, “Multimodal Dialogue Management for Multiparty Interaction with Infants,” an experimental, peer-reviewed publication on the impact of the RAVE language learning tool (Petitto, PI, NSF INSPIRE; W. M. Keck Foundation) on infants’ (ages 6-12 months) learning, especially language learning.



Nashihati Gilani, S., Traum, D., Merla, A., Hee, E., Walker, Z., Manini, B., Gallagher, G., & Petitto, L.A. (2018). Multimodal Dialogue Management for Multiparty Interaction with Infants. Published in the proceedings for the ACM International Conference on Multimodal

Interaction (ICMI). ISBN 978-1-4503-5692-3/18/10. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1145/3242969.3243029.
