Optimality and Syntax Acquisition

I am interested in doing some research in the area of optimality
theory and the acquisition of syntax (first language). Up until now I
have not been able to find anything on OT and syntax acquisition, so I
was wondering if anyone else did (or knows of any work in progress). In
particular, I want to look at the theoretical implications of OT syntax
for first language acquisition, but anything about OT and syntx
acquisition would do. Please email me at:

Thanks very much!
