This volume contains 15 papers selected from the 7th Conference on the
Acquisition of Spanish and Portuguese as First and Second Languages, which
was held at the University of Minnesota in 2004. The papers discuss how
children and adults learn Spanish and Portuguese, examining acquisition and
development in the areas of phonology, morphology, syntax, and writing. The
proceedings also includes several papers examining ser and estar, and a
plenary paper by Barbara Lafford comparing study abroad and classroom
learning of Spanish as a second language. The complete table of contents is
available at http://www.lingref.com/cpp/casp/7/
along with abstracts and the actual papers in PDF format.
