Module assignments


This course aims at introducing students to the acquisition of the syntax of English as a first language (L1), including universals of the acquisition process and instances of atypical language development. We will look into different phenomena and discuss theories of language acquisition, testing their explanatory power in the face of child language data. In addition, we will deal with research methods in acquisition and gain insights into the evaluation of language data. By the end of the course, students will be able to give an overview of the milestones of the acquisition of English syntax, elaborate on acquisition theory and research but also conduct a small research project themselves.
