Abstract:

Modern linguistic theory has been based on the promise of explaining how
language acquisition can occur so rapidly with such subtlety, and with both
surprising uniformity and diversity across languages. This handbook provides a
summary and assessment of how far that promise has been fulfilled, exploring
core concepts in acquisition theory, including notions of the initial state,
parameters, triggering theory, the role of competition and frequency, and many
others, across a variety of syntactic topics that have formed the central
domains of investigation and debate. These topics are treated from the unique
perspective of central actors in each domain who have helped shape the
research agenda. The authors have presented a summary of the data, the
theories under discussion, and their own best assessments of where each
domain stands. Providing as well the agenda for future work in the field showing
both particular needs and general directions that should be pursued in the
coming decades.
