    This book presents a thorough description of morphosyntactic knowledge developed by learners of French in four different learning situations ? first language (L1) acquisition, second (L2) language acquisition, bilingualism, and acquisition by children with Specific Language Impairment ? within the theoretical framework of generative grammar. This approach... more...

    This volume is a collection of studies by some of the foremost researchers of French acquisition in the generative framework.

  • The Acquisition of Syntax in Romance Languagesby Vincent Torrens; Linda Escobar

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 188.00

    This study investigates whether and how English-speaking L2 learners at various proficiency levels acquire the morphosyntactic and discourse-pragmatic properties of subject expression in Spanish. The crucial question is whether discourse-pragmatic properties are acquired together with syntactic features or later in the process of interlanguage development.... more...

  • Approaches to Bootstrappingby Jürgen Weissenborn; Barbara Höhle

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 165.00

    Recent literature in developmental psycholinguistics has emphasized the role of prosodic bootstrapping in discovering syntactic constituents and word order regularities in early grammar.1 One of the puzzles this theoretical paradigm leaves open is the “perception (or comprehension) prior to production” maxim.2 In many cases a puzzling... more...

  • Approaches to Bootstrappingby Jürgen Weissenborn; Barbara Höhle

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 165.00

    What features of brain processing and neural development support linguistic development in young children? To what extent is the profile and timing of linguistic development in young children determined by a pre-ordained genetic programme? Does the environment play a crucial role in determining the patterns of change observed in children growing up?... more...

  • Child Second Language Acquisitionby Sonia Rocca

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 158.00

    As one of the first books in child second language acquisition (SLA), this book focuses on the core area of tense-aspect morphology, reporting on three L1-Italian children learning L2 English vs. three L1-English children learning L2 Italian. An innovative longitudinal/bidirectional research design, where two languages represent both source and target,... more...

  • Connected Wordsby Paul Meara

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 49.95

    What words come into your head when you think of SUN? For native English speakers, the most common responses are MOON, SHINE and HOT, and about half of all native speaker responses to SUN are covered by these three words. L2 English speakers are much less obliging, and produce patterns of association that are markedly different from those produced... more...

  • Corpora in Language Acquisition Researchby Heike Behrens

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 128.00

    Corpus research forms the backbone of research on children's language development. Leading researchers in the field present a survey on the history of data collection, different types of data, and the treatment of methodological problems. Morphologically and syntactically parsed corpora allow for the concise explorations of formal phenomena, the quick... more...

  • Cross-Linguistic Aspects of Processability Theoryby Manfred Pienemann

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 173.00

    Seven years ago Manfred Pienemann proposed a novel psycholinguistic theory of language development, Processability Theory (PT). This volume examines the typological plausibility of PT. Focusing on the acquisition of Arabic, Chinese and Japanese the authors demonstrate the capacity of PT to make detailed and verifiable predictions about the developmental... more...
