Book Information


Title: First Language Acquisition of Morphology and Syntax
Subtitle: Perspectives across languages and learners
Edited By: Pedro Guijarro-Fuentes
María Pilar Larrañaga
John Clibbens
Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 45

The papers comprising this volume focus on a broad range of acquisition
phenomena (subject dislocation, structural case, word order, determiners,
pronouns, quantifiers and logical words) from different languages and
language combinations. These include languages with large numbers of
speakers (French, German, Spanish) and less frequently spoken ones
(Norwegian, Russian, Swiss-German, Hebrew, Basque and Serbo-Croatian)
within different language acquisition scenarios and a wide range of
populations. Most contributions adopt a common theoretical background
within the generative approach with the aim to advance, discuss and
critically analyse other research on first, bilingual and language impaired
acquisition. The various sections of this stimulating volume reflect
different theoretical and methodological perspectives of current research
investigating morphology and syntax and offer diverging interpretations.
