Abstract:

The book is about the numeral classifier system and the acquisition of
Japanese classifiers by Japanese children.

The Acquisition of Japanese Numeral Classifiers consists of two parts.
First, it provides a general typological characterization of numeral
classifier phrases and discusses problems in determining what constitutes
the nature of classifiers. It also discusses the semantic properties of
numeral classifiers based on an analysis of four languages from four
different language families. Second, it examines the acquisitions of
Japanese numeral classifiers by Japanese preschool children, ages 3 to 6,
with a primary emphasis on the development of comprehension. The importance
of the study is that it reveals that young children have a much greater
sensitivity to the conceptual underpinnings of the numeral classifier
system than was previously considered to be the case. The research results
also provide a converging source of evidence that young children often come
to initially grasp the structure of the world in ways that are better
understood in cognitive than perceptual terms. The implications will
contribute to not only the area of language acquisition but also
categorization and conceptual development.
