The Acquisition of Syntax : Studies in Comparative Developmental Linguistics PDF
Edited by Marc-Ariel Friedemann, Luigi Rizzi
Part of the Longman Linguistics Library series
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.
