An Introduction to Linguistic Theory and Language Acquisition Résumé

An Introduction to Linguistic Theory and Language Acquisition Stephen Crain

Directed towards general introductory linguistics courses, as well as courses in language acquisition, this textbook introduces the fundamentals of syntax and semantics in generative grammar and applies them to the study of child language. Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, it represents the theory of Universal Grammar and shows how the theory has proved helpful in understanding the process of language acquisition. Edited by two of the foremost researchers in the field, the book benefits from their insight into conceptual issues, their understanding of experimentation, and their own pioneering research.

An Introduction to Linguistic Theory and Language Acquisition Avis

It is perfect not just for courses in language acquisition, but more generally as an introduction to language for anyone interested in a psychological perspective. It presents generative grammar as a psychological model in a way that is both deep and easy for the student to understand. Juan Uriagereka, University of Maryland at College Park
