Linguistic Field: Morphology
Subject Language: German
Abstract: In its treatment of German adjective inflection, the present paper is located at the crossroads between German language pedagogy and linguistics. It addresses scholars, students and teachers of German language and/or linguistics with the aim of providing some in-depth information on the nature of German adjective inflection and takes into consideration the particular difficulties encountered in acquiring proficiency in this structure especially, but not only, by speakers of English. A brief introduction into L1 and L2 acquisition of morphology in general is followed by a diachronic and synchronic analysis of German adjective inflection and ends with a proposed set of rules designed to derive all thirty-two adjective-inflection cells contained in the German noun phrase.
