The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on the acquisition of case in as large a variety of languages as possible. Case systems vary greatly, both in size and in the kind of information they mark, ranging from syntactic, semantic to discourse-pragmatic information. Do children approach the expression of case in a similar way across languages or is the input the sole predictor of when and how specific cases are learned? To understand how children approach case learning we need to compare its development and use by both children and those they interact with in typologically different languages. Some of the main questions we would like to address in this workshop are:
What are the main challenges to the learning of case in the language(s) that you are presenting?
What is the order of cases learned?
What are the criteria for productivity?
What are the patterns of use both in the language of the child and the input?
What are the interrelations between the acquisition of case and agreement or word order?
