The focus of this collection of essays is on the acquisition of so
called vulnerable and invulnerable grammatical domains in
multilingualism. Language acquisition is studied from a comparative
perspective, mostly in the framework of generative grammar. Different
types of multilingualism are compared, the existence of multiple
grammars in L1 acquisition, simultaneous L2 acquisition (balanced and
unbalanced bilingualism) and successive L2 acquisition (child and
adult L2 acquisition). Evidence from the language pairs French-German,
Italian-Swedish, Spanish-English, Spanish-German, Spanish-Basque,
Portuguese-Japanese-English, Portuguese-German, English-German,
Turkish-German is brought to bear on grammatical issues pertaining to
the morphology and syntax of the noun phrase, pronoun use and the
null-subject property, clause structure, verb position, non-finite
clauses, agreement at the clause level, and on issues like code mixing
and language dominance.
