Subject: Language Acquisition: Models of Language Acquisition

MODELS OF LANGUAGE ACQUISITION: Inductive and Deductive Approaches
Edited by Peter Broeder, Tilburg University, The Netherlands, and
Jaap Murre, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This book presents recent advances by leading researchers in
computational modelling of language acquisition. The contributors have
been drawn from departments of linguistics, cognitive science,
psychology, and computer science. They show what light can be thrown
on fundamental problems when powerful computational techniques are
combined with real data. The book considers the extent to which
linguistic structure is readily available in the environment, the
degree to which language learning is inductive or deductive, and the
power of different modelling formalisms for different problems and
approaches. It will appeal to linguists, psychologists, cognitive
scientists working in language acquisition,and to those involved in
computational modelling in linguistic and behavioral science.
