  • Hispanic Child Languagesby John Grinstead

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 149.00

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 54.00

    Age effects have played a particularly prominent role in some theoretical perspectives on second language acquisition. This book takes an entirely new perspective on this issue by re-examining these theories in light of the existence of apparently similar non-native outcomes in adult heritage speakers who, unlike adult second language learners, acquired... more...

  • Language Acquisition and the Form of the Grammarby David Lebeaux

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    Language Acquisition and the Form of the Grammar attempts to re-think the ideal organization of the grammar, given its need to be learned. The book proposes a fundamental connection between the form of the adult grammar and the sequence of grammars which the child adopts in first language acquisition. Challenging the conventional division between... more...
