The Acquisition of Syntax : Studies in Comparative Developmental Linguistics Paperback

Edited by Marc-Ariel Friedemann, Luigi Rizzi

Part of the Longman Linguistics Library series

Description

This volume contains a collection of studies that survey recent research in developmental linguistics, illustrating the fruitful interaction between comparative syntax and language acquisition.

The contributors each analyse a well defined range of acquisition data, aiming to derive them from primitive differences between child and adult grammar.

The book covers cross-linguistic and cross-categorial phenomena, shedding light on major developments in this novel and rapidly growing field.

Extensions to second language acquisition and neuropathology are also suggested.
