Language and the Learning Curve

A New Theory of Syntactic Development

Anat Ninio

  • Unique in combining mainstream generative or Chomskian linguistics with learning theory, providing an original interdisciplinary approach to understanding syntactic development
  • Provides an unusually detailed theoretical background from linguistics, cognitive psychology, and complexity theory, thus familarizing the reader with the key theories
  • In every topic covered, explicit reference made to relevant work within computational linguistics, therefore providing those in developmental psychology with an exceptionally rich account of the field of language development
