Child Language; A Book of Readings.
Bar-Adon, Aaron, Ed.; Leopold, Werner F., Ed.
The present volume is designed to help the student of child language, especially the beginning student, discover the high points of American and international research, such as French, German, Hebrew, Polish, and Russian. The selections in this reader are intended as an introduction to various fields of child language and to different theories and research methods, both psychological and linguistic, as well as to various stages in the history of child language research. Special attention has been given to contemporary research on all facets of child language: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and the study of first language acquisition within a generative-transformational theory of language and the search for linguistic universals. The 60 selections are chosen from the contributions of linguists, psychologists, and representatives of related fields, and reflect the development of the study of child language from the 19th century to the present.
