Abstract:

Are all children exposed to the same linguistic input, and do they follow the
same route in acquisition? The answer is no: The language that children hear
differs even within a social class or cultural setting, as do the paths individual
children take. The linguistic signal itself is also variable, both within and across
speakers - the same sound is different across words; the same speech act can
be realized with different constructions. The challenge here is to explain, given
their diversity of experience, how children arrive at similar generalizations about
their first language. This volume brings together studies of phonology,
morphology, and syntax in development, to present a new perspective on how
experience and variation shape children's linguistic generalizations. The papers
deal with variation in forms, learning processes, and speaker features, and
assess the impact of variation on the mechanisms and outcomes of language
learning.
