Message 1: Paths of Development in L1 and L2 Acquisition: Unsworth et al (Eds)
Date: 16-Mar-2006
From: Paul Peranteau <paulbenjamins.com>
Subject: Paths of Development in L1 and L2 Acquisition: Unsworth et al (Eds)


The main focus of generative language development research in recent
decades has been the logical problem of language acquisition - how learners
go beyond the input to acquire complex linguistic knowledge. This
collection deals with the complementary issue of the developmental problem
of language acquisition: How do learners move from one developmental stage
to another and how and why do grammars develop in a certain fashion?
Building on considerable previous research, the authors address both
general and specific issues related to paths of development. These issues
are tackled through considering studies of L1 and L2 children and L2 adults
learning a range of languages including Dutch, English, French, German,
Greek and Japanese.
