Jean Berko Gleason born is a professor emerita in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences formerly the Department of Psychology at Boston University ,  a psycholinguist who has made fundamental contributions to the understanding of language acquisition in children, aphasia , gender differences in language development, and parent—child interactions. Of her Wug Test , by which she demonstrated that even young children possess implicit knowledge of linguistic morphology , it has been said, "Perhaps no innovation other than the invention of the tape recorder has had such an indelible effect on the field of child language research", the "wug" one of the imaginary creatures Gleason drew in creating the Wug Test being "so basic to what [psycholinguists] know and do that increasingly it appears in the popular literature without attribution to its origins. Jean Berko was born to Hungarian immigrant parents in Cleveland, Ohio. In January she married Harvard mathematician Andrew Gleason ; they had three daughters. Most of Gleason's professional career has been at Boston University , where she served as Psychology Department chair and director of the Graduate Program in Applied Linguistics; Lise Menn and Harold Goodglass were among her collaborators there.
