John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce that Shanley Allen (Boston
University) and Caroline Rowland (University of Liverpool) have agreed to
become the new series editors for Trends in Language Acquisition Research

Shanley Allen (PhD, McGill University) is an Associate Professor in the
School of Education at Boston University, USA. Her research focuses on how
the morphosyntactic structure of a language affects the patterns of
development in that language. She is best known for her work on the
acquisition of Inuktitut (Eskimo) as well as the acquisition of argument
structure and argument realization. She has published numerous articles and
chapters on language acquisition, and has served for several years as
Associate Editor of the Journal of Child Language.

Caroline Rowland (PhD, University of Nottingham) is a senior lecturer in
the School of Psychology at the University of Liverpool, UK. Her research
focuses on the question of how children acquire their first language, with
the aim of developing and testing constructivist models of the language
acquisition process. She is best known for her work on English children's
acquisition of questions and auxiliaries and she has written, edited and
contributed to a number of books and journals on first language acquisition.

TiLAR publishes monographs, edited volumes and text books on theoretical
and methodological issues in the field of child language research. The
focus of the series is on original research on all aspects of the
scientific study of language behavior in children, linking different areas
of research including linguistics, psychology & cognitive science.

The editors welcome proposals for thematic collections and monographs,
focusing on work with a constructivist/non-generativist slant. TiLAR wants
to publish sound empirical work (including research monographs based on PhD
theses of an excellent standard) and to encourage debates and discussions.

Shanley Allen and Caroline Rowland will be assisted by an editorial board
consisting of:
Ruth Berman, Tel Aviv University
Morten Christiansen, Cornell University
Jean Berko Gleason, Boston University
Nancy Budwig, Clark University
Ewa Dabrowska, University of Sheffield
Philip S. Dale, University of New Mexico
Paul Fletcher, University College Cork
Steven Gillis, University of Antwerp
Annick De Houwer, University of Erfurt
Elena Lieven, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig
Brian MacWhinney, Carnegie Mellon University
