Syntactic Development

Its input and output

Anat Ninio

  • Based on a very large corpus providing detailed lists of verbs used by parents and children in various syntactic combinations
  • Unique in combining mainstream generative or Chomskian linguistics with a learning theory, providing a model of the acquisition of syntax as similar to vocabulary learning - with possible applications in education and remedial intervention
  • Provides an unusually detailed theoretical background from linguistics, developmental psychology and Complexity Theory, helping to familiarise the reader with advanced source theories
