Using Chomsky's minimalist program as a framework, this volume explores the role of formal (or functional) features in current descriptions and accounts of language acquisition. In engaging, up-to-date articles, distinguished experts examine the role of features in current versions of generative grammar and in learnability theory as it relates to native, non-native, and impaired acquisition.
