Competing Language Structures: The Acquisition of Verb Placement by Bilingual German-English Children.
Dopke, Susanne
Journal of Child Language, v25 n3 p555-84 Oct 1998
Investigated the acquisition of verb placement by bilingual young children learning both German and English. Researchers recorded their speech monthly for three years and analyzed word order in the verb phrase. The children were actively involved in the process of determining structure in each language. Development of language output did not follow the path taken by monolingual children unconditionally. (SM)
