Title: 'Parametric variation in acquisition and diachronic change: A response to the commentaries'
Author: J├╝rgenMMeisel
Institution: 'Universit├Ąt Hamburg'
Linguistic Field: 'Historical Linguistics; Language Acquisition'
Abstract: The starting hypothesis of the keynote article (KA) is that language acquisition plays an essential role in processes leading to grammatical change. Consequently, a minimal requirement, to be met by explanations of diachronic change is that they rely on mechanisms which are operative in acquisition. The KA is therefore an appeal for interdisciplinary cooperation between historical linguistics and acquisition research.
