    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Current Trends in Child Second Language Acquisitionby Belma Haznedar; Elena Gavruseva

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 158.00

    This study examines the use of tense- and non-tense-marking morphology over time by a group of English L2 children with typical language development and two English L2 children with language delay/impairment. The aim was to ascertain whether the Extended Optional Infinitive (EOI) account characterized the acquisition patterns displayed by the affected... more...

    This book presents an extended analysis of the development of L2 Spanish past tense morphology among L1 English-speaking learners. The study addresses three major questions: (1) what is the developmental pattern of acquisition of past tense verbal morphology among tutored learners? (2) what are the relevant factors that may account for the particular... more...

  • The Development of Prosodic Structure in Early Wordsby Mitsuhiko Ota

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 149.00

    This monograph addresses three basic questions regarding the development of word-internal prosodic structure: How much of the phonological structure of early words is regulated by the same constituents and principles that govern the organization of prosodic structure of mature grammar? Why do early words diverge from the adult targets in shape and... more...
