Title: The Acquisition of Verb Placement - Functional Categories and V2 Phenomena in Language Acquisition
Edited By: J├╝rgen M Meisel

The twelve original contributions in this volume all focus on the question of whether developing grammars contain, at each stage of language acquisition, the full range of functional categories such as INFL, AGR, or COMP. The studies presented here investigate monolingual and bilingual first language and, in one case, adult second language acquisition.
