Volume III: Sigridur Sigurjonsdottir: Spurnarsetningar i mali tveggja
islenskra barna (The Interrogative in the Speech of Two Icelandic
Children). Prize: USD 16.
This is an account of research on the development of interogative
sentences in the speech of two Icelandic children from the age of two
to three and a half. A number of conclusions are drawn, among them
the observation that the first questions of Icelandic children begin
with "viltu" 'do you want to' and usually function as requests.
