Title: Linguistic Evolution through Language Acquisition
Edited By: Ted Briscoe
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521662990
Description:

This groundbreaking study of how children acquire language and the effects on language change over the generations draws on a wide range of examples. The book covers specific syntactic universals and the nature of syntactic change. It reviews the language-learning mechanisms required to acquire an existing linguistic system (accurately and to impose further structure on an emerging system) and the evolution of language(s) in relation to this learning mechanism.
