Book Information


Title: The Acquisition of Relative Clauses
Subtitle: Processing, typology and function
Edited By: Evan Kidd
Series Title: Trends in Language Acquisition Research 8

Explaining the acquisition and processing of relative clauses has long
challenged psycholinguistics researchers. The current volume presents a
collection of chapters that consider the acquisition of relative clauses with a
particular focus on function, typology, and language processing. A diverse range
of theoretical approaches and languages are bought to bear on the acquisition of
this construction type, making the volume unique in its coverage. The volume
will appeal to students and scholars whose interest lies in the acquisition and
processing of syntax with a particular focus on complex sentences in
crosslinguistic and functionalist perspective.
