Book Information


Title: Production-Comprehension Asymmetries in Child Language
Edited By: Angela Grimm
Anja Müller
Cornelia Hamann
Esther Ruigendijk
Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 43

This book summarizes papers from the workshop 'Production-Comprehension
Asymmetries in Child Language' held in Osnabrück in 2009. The starting point of
the workshop was the observation that children's production skills appear to
precede their comprehension skills in a number of phenomena, e.g. pronouns or
negation. The volume provides cross-linguistic evidence for such asymmetric
development and investigates grammatical and methodical explanations of the
observed asymmetries.
