Meeting Description: Cross-linguistic studies of adjective acquisition are crucial to our understanding of the relation between language and cognition, since the adjective category is not universal and reveals a lot of cross-linguistic variation. However, relatively little attention has been given to the acquisition of the adjective category in languages beyond English and to cross-linguistic comparisons in this domain. This workshop aims to bring together experts in the field of adjective learning from different countries - who rarely meet due to being geographically scattered - and thereby stimulate collaborative projects in this area.
