Abstract:

This systematic presentation of the parametric approach to child language
considers the nature of the information the child must acquire according to
the various linguistic theories. In doing so it sets out in detail the
practical aspects of acquisitional research, addresses the challenges of
working with children of different ages and backgrounds, and shows how the
resulting data can be used to test theories of grammatical variation. It
presents studies of the acquisition of syllable structure, empty
categories, and wh-movement. The book is written for graduate students and
advanced undergraduates taking courses on child language acquisition in
linguistics, psychology, and cognitive science, and will be a useful
reference for all researchers in child language acquisition in whatever
field. The data sets on which the book draws freely available to students
and researchers via a website maintained by the author.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
