Qs: L1 Acquisition; Short Message Service Corpus

Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: First Language Acquisition

Dear all,

I'm doing a cross-sectional study of the acquisition of verb inflections in
Arabic as a first language, dealing with children ranging in age from 2 to
4 years old. I'm facing some difficulties in eliciting data. Could anybody
tell me some good ways in eliciting tense, gender, person and number?
