Book Information


Title: Grammatikerwerb vor und nach der Pubert├Ąt [Grammar Acquisition Pre and Post Puberty]
Written By: Christine Czinglar
Series Title: De Gruyter DaZ-Forschung [DaZ-For] 6

The author presents a longitudinal study on verb placement in children who have spontaneously learned German as a second language. It compares the position of the verb in main and subordinate clauses in two half-sisters whose mother tongue is Russian, and who came to Germany at the ages 8 and 14, respectively. The study shows that children and adolescents differ substantially in how rapidly they can achieve stable mastery of the target language.
