Abstract:

This volume presents the intermediate results of the international
"Crosslinguistic Project on Pre- and Protomorphology in Language
Acquisition" co-ordinated by Wolfgang U. Dressler in behalf of the Austrian
Academy of Sciences. It continues the series of publications started with
Dressler & Karpf 1995, Dressler 1997, Dziubalska-Kolaczyk 1997, Gillis
1998, Bittner, Dressler and Kilani-Schoch 2000 as well as individual
publications of the project participants. About the project - take the
introduction from Dressler (manuscript for San Sebastian).

The book includes several introductory chapters (Dressler & Kilani-Schoch,
Stephany, Voeikova) written by the project co-ordinators on the base of the
written reports of participants and several studies on the acquisition of
noun and verb morphology in the transitory phase from pre- to
protomorphology (for definitions see Bittner, Dressler and Kilani-Schoch
2000: 3 ff.) and in the protomorphological phase in eight languages
(German, Finnish, French, Yucatec Maya, Italian, Lithuanian, Russian and
Spanish).

Both inflectional and derivational morphology is observed in nouns,
including such topics as compounding, diminutive formation, case and number
distinctions. Verbs are described from the point of view of inflectional
morphology and agreement.

Case vs. number and person - heterogeneous. Number and person -
crosslinguistically - the difference is in the type of marking and shape
(more patterns, inflectional classes etc. vs. phonological harmony). The
set of forms is comparable.

Case - the set of forms is hardly comparable without grouping. Big number
of forms in the paradigm does not aggravate their acquisition if there are
no inflectional classes. On the other hand, small number of distinct
inflectional forms, analytical marking, other means to express case
distinctions may slow the process.
