Linguistic LingField(s):   Language Acquisition

Summary:   For those who expressed interest, here's a summary of work on Dutch
language acquisition. I'd like to thank the following for leads:

Annick De Houwer, University of Antwerp, Belgium
Laura Walsh Dickey, Max Planck Instituut
Sandra Peters, Utrecht? (ruu)
Rick Ruhland, Fac. PPSW RuG Groningen
Frank Wijnen, Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS

I'd like to thank the respondents who pointed out that I used the
wrong article with markt - *het instead of de - but I'm not looking at
second language errors: I know all about them from personal

The references that arose from the query are the following:

G. Bol's and F. Kuiken's 1988 dissertation (in Dutch) `Grammaticale
analyse van taalontwikkelingsstoornissen'.

Annick De Houwer has some data on gender errors, I believe, in her
book on bilingual language acquisition (1990, Cambridge).

textbook by Gillis & Schaerlaekens "Kindertaalverwerving: een
ori!tatie op Nederlandstalig onderzoek" (Groningen: Wolters) is a
useful source of references.

Willem Kaper (1985?): Child language: a language which doesn't
exist?", published by, I think, Foris.

Charlotte Koster. Errors in anaphora acquisition. about 4 years ago.

Susan Powers has worked in that area, and reported on it in her 1995?
dissertation. See also her contribution to the BU 19 proceedings
(volume 2; Somerville, MA: Cascadilla, 1995) and her paper `The
acquisition of case in Dutch' (in M. Verrips & F. Wijnen (eds.),
`Papers from the Dutch-German Colloquium on Language Acquisition' --
Amsterdam Series in Child Language Development #3 (

L. Schlichtings 1996 dissertation, the title of which I can't remember.
Published by Nijmegen University Press.

Annick De Houwer also writes that:
>An overview of Dutch child language acquisition that I'm co-editing
>with Steven Gillis is currently under review with John Benjamins, and
>in our preparatory work for that volume we really didn't find much
>that could address your query.

So there you have it. Plenty of room for more work in many fields.
