Abstract:

This book contains 12 papers contributed by leading scholars in the field
of language development, studying variants of the languages which
originated on the Iberian peninsula. The contributors examine language
development in both typically-developing and language-impaired populations
who are learning language in diverse learning conditions, including
language contact, as well as monolingual and bilingual Spanish, Catalan,
Galician and Euskera. This expansion and diversification of the database
for studying language development is important because it creates new
opportunities for testing theoretical claims. Our contributors reconsider
theoretical claims relating to the purported adult-like nature of young
children's grammars. While some conclude, for example, that children in
Mexico possess very adult-like semantic-pragmatic competence in the domain
of the pragmatic implicatures associated with existential quantifiers,
others conclude that, in particular sociolinguistic registers of Chilean
Spanish, children are late to develop adult-like competence in plural
marking. Taken together, the contents of the volume illustrate how the
linguistic diversity found in the distinct learning conditions in which
language develops offers a wealth of opportunities to further our
understanding of linguistic and non-linguistic cognitive development.
