G.L.S.A. (University of Massachusetts, Amherst) announces a new volume: 

	New Perspectives on Language Acquisition (UMOP 22)
	edited by Bart Hollebrandse

This volume focuses on First Language Acquisition and its relation
with Linguistic Theory. The volume is a collection of papers presented
at the workshop "New Perspectives on Language Acquisition" held at the
University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Main issues were topics concerning the early acquisition of syntactic
structure, the acquisition of aspectual and pragmatic components of 
the grammar, the relation between language acquisition and theory of 
mind. Furthermore, some papers discussing issues concerning binding 
theory as well as island behavior and their relation with a Formal
Feature system were included.
