Abstract:

This volume investigates the linguistic development of children with regard
to their knowledge of the verb and its grammar. The selection of papers
gives empirical evidence from a wide variety of languages including Hebrew,
German, Croatian, Japanese, English, Spanish, Dutch, Indonesian, Estonian,
Russian and French. Findings are interpreted with a focus on
cross-linguistic similarities and differences, without subscribing to
either a UG-based or usage-based approach.

Currently debated topics, such as the role of frequency, as well as
traditional ones such as bootstrapping are integrated into the presentation
of language-specific, learner-specific and more general properties of the
acquisition process.

The papers are united by their focus on discovering what determines
rule-governed behavior in language learners who are coming to terms with
the grammar of verbs.
