Recent developments in linguistic theory, as well as the growing body
of evidence from languages other than English, provide new
opportunities for deeper explorations into how language is represented
in the mind of learners. This collection of new empirical studies on
the acquisition of Spanish morphosyntax by leading researchers in the
field of language acquisition, specifically contributes to the
characterization of the L1 / L2 connection in acquisition. Using L1
and L2 Spanish data from children and adults, the authors seek to
address the central questions that have occupied developmental
psycholinguists in the final decades of the previous century and that
will no doubt continue engaging them into the present one.
 From the perspective of minimalism, the various studies in this
volume investigate both the type of mental representations that can
account for optionality as a trait of emergent grammars, as well as
the role of morphology as a trigger for the acquisition of syntax
across a variety of aspects of the developing grammar: the
morphosyntax of nouns, verbs, pronominal clitics and compounds.
 This book is of interest to scholars in linguistics, especially in
the field of language acquisition, psycholinguistics, bilingualism,
communication, and applied linguistics, and those interested in the
structure and acquisition of the romance languages.
