Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Acquisition

Query:   Hi

I'm looking for information related with the ACQUISITION of Differential
Object Marking---DOM constructions include cases like the Spanish
preposition A, for direct objects that are [+animate] and [+specific], or
Turkish accusative suffix -yi for [+specific] objects.

There are several studies dealing with DOM constructions--including the
ones mentioned here:

However, it is difficult to find studies dealing with the acquisition of
these structures. I'm interested in this particular aspect of DOM
constructions. If you know works in this topic (including works in
progress), please, let me know. I will be happy to post a summary.
