Book Information


Title: The Development of Grammar
Subtitle: Language acquisition and diachronic change. In honour of Jürgen M. Meisel
Edited By: Esther Rinke
Tanja Kupisch
Series Title: Hamburg Studies on Multilingualism 11

This volume focuses on different aspects of language development. The
contributions are concerned with similarities and differences between
first and second language acquisition, the acquisition of sentence
structure and functional categories, cross-linguistic influence in
bilingual first language acquisition as well as the relation between
language acquisition, language contact and diachronic change. The
recurrent topic of the volume is the link between linguistic variation and
the limitation of structural variability in the framework of a well-defined
theory of language. In this respect, the volume opens up new
perspectives for future research.
