The Annual Review is devoted to research in the domain of first
language acquisition, i.e., the process of acquiring command of a
first language. It focuses on research which has been reported in
recently defended Ph.D. theses. The major share of contributions to
the yearbook consist of 10.000 word (approximately) excerpts from, or
edited summaries of, dissertations addressing issues in first language
acquisition, including bilingual first language acquisition. These
papers should be written by the original author of the dissertation,
conform to the format of a journal article, and thus be comprehensible
without reference to the source text.

The Annual Review publishes reports of original research pertaining to
various approaches to first language and bilingual first language
acquisition, be it experimental, observational, computational,
clinical or theoretical, provided that the work is of high
quality. The Annual Review also welcomes studies in which first
language acquisition is compared to second language acquisition, as
well as studies on language acquisition under abnormal conditions. In
all of the areas covered, the Annual Review of Language Acquisition is
dedicated to creative and groundbreaking research.

The yearbook, in its printed form, will be supplemented by an
attractive website. The website will give access to electronic copies
of the printed papers, but, more importantly, will also present
background materials such as a resume for the author, excerpts of
audio or video materials related to the reported research, tips for
further reading, and links to relevant websites. In addition to the
research reports sketched above, each issue of the Annual Review will
contain one critical review of the state-of-the-art in a subdomain of
first language acquisition research. This paper will be commissioned
by the editors.

Any student who has a dissertation completed between October 2000 and
December 2001 is invited to submit a manuscript based on this work. In
order to be eligible for publication, the manuscript should be of
outstanding quality. Particularly, contributions are sought which
excel with regard to the integration of behavioral data and
(psycho)linguistic theorizing. More specifically, the Annual Review
solicits papers which: * develop new theoretical ideas to account for
a set of facts; * open up a new empirical domain or new set of data,
e.g. explore a relatively unknown language, or apply a new or unknown
experimental approach; * report findings that are considered important
for pertinent debates in the field.

Submitted papers will be thoroughly reviewed by at least two members
of the editorial board and/or external advisers.
