  • Choosing a Grammarby Isaac Gould

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 149.00

    This book investigates the role that ambiguous evidence can play in the acquisition of syntax. To illustrate this, the book introduces a probabilistic learning model for syntactic parameters that learns a grammar of best fit to the learner’s evidence. The model is then applied to a range of cross-linguistic case studies – in Swiss German, Korean, and... more...
