Qs: Linguists Writing About Their Own Children

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.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.

It can't be helped. Every linguist with a child is also a scientist with a
subject. I am looking for examples of works published by linguists about
the language behavior of their own children. For example, Sadock's ''The
Bennish Optative'' (CLS, 1982) or Jaeger's ''Kids' Slips'' (2005). They
might be broad programs of study (a la Piaget) or one-time papers. I am
interested in the the unique perspective that being a linguist gives to a
parent of small children.
