This book presents a thorough description of morphosyntactic knowledge
developed by learners of French in four different learning situations —
first language (L1) acquisition, second (L2) language acquisition,
bilingualism, and acquisition by children with Specific Language Impairment
— within the theoretical framework of generative grammar. This approach
allows for multiple comparisons across acquisition contexts, which provides
the reader with invaluable insights into the nature of the acquisition
process. The book is divided into four parts each dealing with a major
morphosyntactic domain of acquisition: the verbal domain, the pronominal
domain, the nominal domain, and the CP domain. Each part contains four
chapters, the first one presenting an overview of the basic facts and
analyses of the relevant properties of French, and the next three focusing
on the different acquisition contexts. This book will be useful to anyone
interested in the acquisition of French and in language development in
general. It is also meant to stimulate cross-linguistic research from a
theoretical perspective.
