The contributors to the Proceedings of the Thirtieth Meeting of the Child
Language Research Forum explore their findings on language acquisition in a
variety of the world’s languages, reflecting the diversity of interests in
the field and the range of languages being studied. This volume makes an
empirical, as well as a theoretical, contribution to linguistic research.
Since its inception in 1967, the Forum has provided an informal but
critical setting for the presentation of new ideas and research on first
language acquisition. The Forum itself is sponsored by the Linguistics
Department at Stanford University, and is organized by graduate students.
The Forum draws researchers from around the globe.
