The PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRTIETH CHILD LANGUAGE RESEARCH FORUM makes
an empirical, as well as a theoretical, contribution to linguistic
research. The contributors to the Proceedings of the Thirtieth meeting
explore their findings on language acquisition in a variety of the
world's languages, reflecting the diversity of interests in the field
and the range of languages being studied. Topics examined in this
volume include the difficulties experienced by a bilingual child, the
difference between the rhythmic characteristics of children compared
to adults, and children's ability to learn inflectional agreement from
parental speech. The studies included in this volume were presented at
the 30th Child Language Research Forum held at Stanford University in
Since its inception in 1967, the Forum has provided an informal but
critical setting for the presentation of new ideas and research on
first language acquisition. The Forum itself is sponsored by the
Linguistics Department at Stanford University, and is organized by
graduate students. The Forum draws researchers from around the globe.
The papers presented at the Forum reflect the diversity of interests
in the field and the range of languages being studied.
