Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Production-Comprehension Asymmetries in Child Language
Edited By: Angela Grimm

Esther Ruigendijk
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110238723-1
Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 43
Description:

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.
