Title: Semantics in Acquisition
Edited By: Veerle van Geenhoven
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-8513-0
Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

*The two linguistic subfields of semantics and language acquisition are
connected to each other, which has rarely been done before.

*Semantics usually deals with adult language, and language acquisition
usually is studied from the perspective of syntax or from a functional
perspective, but not systematically from a formal semantic one.

This volume contains writings focusing on semantic phenomena and their
interpretation in the analysis of the language of a learner. The variety of
phenomena that are addressed is substantial: temporal aspect and tense,
specificity, quantification, scope, finiteness, focus structure, and focus
particles. These phenomena are investigated is many languages. The volume
creates a theoretical as well as an empirical bridge between semantic
research on the one hand and psycholinguistic acquisition studies on the other.
