Title: Generative Perspectives on Language Acquisition: Empirical findings, theoretical considerations and crosslinguistic comparisons
Edited By: Harald Clahsen
Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 14
Description:

Against the background of the proliferation of the various subdisciplines of language acquisition research over the past decades, this volume aims to enhance the existing but somewhat fragile links between language acquisition and theoretical linguistics. With regard to previous research, the book focuses on the acquisition of syntax and syntactic theory, specifically on Chomskyan Generative Grammar.
