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, and studies in which first language acquisition is
compared to second language acquistion, as well as studies on language
acquisition under abnormal conditions. 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.
